Nestled among rolling hills and overlooking Kachemak Bay and the Kenai Mountains, this seaside community has 4, residents and another 8, beyond the city limits. In addition to the downtown area of Homer, a unique attraction is the Homer Spit, a long, narrow finger of land jutting 4.5 miles into Kachemak Bay.

The Spit (as locals refer to Homer's peninsula) is home to a harbor and over 7 charter and commercial boat operators year round, growing to 1,5 in the summer months. Homer offers all the amenities of a small, first class city, including a hospital, medical clinics, pharmacies, police and fire departments, and a U.S. Coast Guard cutter for safety at sea. Local, state and federal government offices operate here, as does the Kenai Peninsula College and a senior citizens center.
