Great little area and a lot of fun. Only there for 1 night but fun watching the fishing charters come in. Cute restaurants and shops too.

The spit is very nice and a must see in Homer. Had a great time walking through the shops. There are plenty of places to eat and the views of the water and mountains are great. Parking can be a problem.

Neat little shops and restaurants. Parking might be a bear at times, but nice to walk around and see things. Must try the local fish and chips!

This little outlet in homer is amazing! The camping is pretty good, but there aren't any tables. But the fishing was absolutely phenomenal! You can catch Lingcod (alaskan pollack) or flounder on every cast. That's a guarantee! I also caught a world record sculpin here... I hold the record of largest sculpin caught on a spinner! It was about 25... More

It's an interesting drive out to the Spit. It has gift shops featuring the regular tourist stuff BUT it does have some nice art and craft works and beautiful items made by the people of Alaska. The charter businesses can be found there and RV campsites and great restaurants too and a harbor full of beautiful boats. I had fun... More

We were in Homer in 1980. Very tourist oriented now. Lots of traffic, but good shopping. Many of the charters for fishing are on the spit, but they do a fantastic job of getting you in and out early and directing you to exactly where you need to go to finalize your fishing trip. Very convenient on the spit.

Homer closes down early so if you're staying there the best place to find restaurants is on the Spit.
