Homer Shores Boardwalk showcases Homer's charm and is truly a part of the history of the world famous Homer Spit. Homer's modest beginning as a fishing village has evolved to now being voted one of the world's top destinations for fishing, ecotourism and shore birding, photography or as an artist's retreat. It's history all comes together on the boardwalk. Picture this, you arrive in Homer the day before your Halibut Charter with O'Fish'ial Charters. Pick up your fishing license and shop for local artisan gifts at the Homers Shores Gift Shoppe. Now relieved knowing where your charter check-in point is for the next morning your lodging awaits any of a number of options for the night above Bare Necessities General Store, above the Homer Shores Gift Shoppe or in Cozy Bear's Cottage, Take in the art from Diamond Ridge Gallery or Exotic Eye offers body art and hand made collectible pieces.
Kachemak Bay Apothecary and Spa offers oil blending and spa services to help you unwind. Now, it's time for a world-class locally caught dinner at Fresh Catch Cafe. As if you were not stuffed enough you just cannot resist the smell of the homemade waffle cones coming from Frosty Bear Ice Cream Parlor. What the heck is vacation for if not splurging so enjoy your vacation by watching the day's catch being filleted right on the boardwalk which is way better with an ice cream in hand.
Now that you have seen the fish that our Alaskan waters hold, it's time for a walk across from the Harbor on the beach to absorb the view of the mountains, glaciers, whales and otters that will hopefully take your mind off fishing tomorrow enough to get some shut eye. The morning comes soon enough, you are awakened by sounds of the waves and eagles overhead; it's time to prepare for the halibut workout. Pick up your breakfast and lunch to go at the Boardwalk Bakery and head to the docks with your morning Latte in hand from Shore Brew Espresso.
