All Roads Lead To Homer
Just 225 scenic miles from Anchorage, the road to Homer is open year-round. Drive south on the Seward Highway, a designated national scenic byway and connect with the Sterling Highway. It's a visual feast, covering miles of highway through mountains, spruce forest and coastline. The drive takes four to five hours on dry roads but provides views that anywhere else would qualify as a national park.
As the crow flies, Homer is 110 miles from Anchorage with numerous flights operating daily year-round. You can also get to Homer via a regularly scheduled shuttle service from Anchorage with Alaska Bus Company. Once in Homer, there are car rentals, several taxi companies, and bike rentals available.
Homer is a port of call for the Alaska Marine Highway for travelers heading out to Kodiak and Dutch Harbor. Once a month during the summer, the M/V Tustumena travels 400 miles along the Alaska Peninsula to the Aleutian Islands, stopping in six different villages: Chignik, Sand Point, King Cove, Cold Bay, False Pass, and Akutan.

There is SO much to do once you get here in Homer. The hardest part isn't getting here but deciding how you want to spend your time. Deep sea fishing out of Kachemak Bay for halibut, salmon, rock fish, or lingcod is extremely popular. Whale watching in Kachemak Bay is absolutely spectacular and wonderful for the whole family. We have incredible hikes across the bay in Kachemak Bay State Park. You can hike or kayak up to a glacier! Want to see brown bears in the wild? You can fly out of Homer on a small plane, spend the day with brown bears in the wild, and make it back to Homer in time for a delicious meal at one of our amazing restaurants!
