A lot of food and sights to see around the harbor. All the different boats where a lot of fun to see as well. The spit is a great place to go and see the catch of the day and here the stories of the trip out.

Homer spit is a fun place to go with lots of shops and restaurants. Our family often does not like to be with hoards of tourists but it was pretty easy to maneuver and get into shops and restaurants the day we visited. It was rainy that day, so maybe some put off the visit for a nicer day. Still,... More

The spit offers lots of shops and restaurants to explore. There's also a chance to see wildlife (e.g., bald eagles next and sea otters).

It's the main landmark area in Homer jutting 4.5miles into Kachemak Bay and it fills to the brim with holiday makers in RVs who've made their way from interstate in summer. They can park and stay for as long as they want swelling the population in Homer by 1000s. Others pitch their tents along the beach and pay a low... More

A great walk on the spit - plenty to see ... fisherman coming in with their hauls, a cute "board walk" area with colorful shops and restaurants, otters and sea birds in the bay, Bald Eagles hanging around. A very touching memorial to those lost at sea. Great views across Katchemak Bay. Just a neat place to visit.

Saw more bald eagles here than anywhere I've ever been. Beautiful spot, and even though we didn't go, I imagine it's great for a fishing trip!!
