Not really an attraction as such, but a 4+ mile end of the roadway. Lots of shops on boardwalks, bars, fishing charters, gift shops, several restaurants. We only saw 2 or 3 closed shops. We did go halibut fishing with Alaska Coastal Marine, 1/2 day trip.16 people on the boat, and everyone got their limit. Boat was a litlle crowded so we learned how to do the "halibut shuffle". Ate at the Little Mermaid and had our fish processed at Coal Point. Shipped home.

This cool natural arm of land that spikes out into the bay is worth a visit. Touristy shoppes and restaurants that are worth checking out while you visit the area.

Lots of shops and restaurants or take a stroll along the docks. During halibut season it is really hard to find a parking place at times.

Everything from junk to fancy hotels. Pier One Theater was a charming break. Some very good food and some expensive places with mediocre fare. Some really good Art and crafts and some junk. A real destination for folks visiting Homer.

Tourist Trap,
1. Over priced food and drink
2. Hard to find a place to park .
3. If it was not full of places trying to rip you off it would be a nice place.
