Introducing Homer

Charming, colorful Homer, at the end of Sterling Hwy, sits on beautiful Kachemak Bay amid awe-inspiring mountains. The town began attracting alternative types in the 1960s, and is now home to artists and aging hippies. The visitor center (907-235-7740; www.homeralaska.org; 201 Sterling Hwy; 9am-7pm Mon-Fri, 10am-6pm Sat & Sun) has courtesy phones to book rooms or tours. Homer’s new library (907-235-3180; 500 Hazel Ave; 10am-6pm Mon, Wed, Fri & Sat, 10am-8pm Tue & Thu) is impressive and has internet access.
