Halibut Cove Alaska, Kachemak Bay State Park, Homer Alaska
The Famous "Spit"
1When people think of the "The Spit" they think
of bustling fishing charters, miles of beaches, a beautiful boat harbor and so
much more. However, viewing the Homer Spit during the winter can be a real
adventure also. Just a very different kind of adventure. The Spit basically has
it's own weather pattern at times and can be treacherously beautiful. An example
is the photo below. Driving The Spit in the winter time. You can click to

Welcome to VisitHomerAlaska.com
Homer is a beautiful "hamlet by the sea" with a slow way of life, and
warm friendly people. Come and experience true Alaskan hospitality at
it's finest. With a view of four of Alaska's active volcanoes, the only
thing that surpasses the hospitality is the scenery! There is scheduled
air service across the bay from Homer daily and there are direct flights
from Anchorage. Come and visit us for a day or a week. You'll love it!

From in our car home seems so far
But soon we'll be with you.

Homer’s climate is moderated by the
Pacific Ocean, resulting in warmer winters and cooler summers than seen in
places farther inland in Alaska. The average maximum temperature is 29.2 degrees
F in January and 60.9 degrees F in July. The average minimum temperature is 16.7
degrees F in January and 46.3 degrees F in July. Average total annual
precipitation is 24.4 inches, with 54.9 inches of snowfall, and 5 inches average
snow depth in February. (Source: Western Regional Climate Center; period of
