    • How would you spend 10 hours in Unalaska?

      Dutch Harbor Yesterday

      My husband, son (2.5 years old), and I will be visiting Dutch Harbor in September on a cruise ship. We have contacted Bobbie (Extra Mile Tours) for a tour but have not heard back from her yet. As a plan B, we are thinking of renting a car for the day. Can anyone recommend an itinerary or places not to miss?

      We love driving through beautiful scenery, stopping for photographs, viewing wildlife in their natural habitat, and learning about different cultures. I read in a previous post that Captain's Bay Road is a great place for whale watching. We were thinking about stopping at the Holy Ascension of Our Lord Christ. What else?

      Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    • Northern Lights necklace

      Alaska Jul 14, 2016 at 1:59 PM

      Hi All!

      I really hope you can help. We did a Disney Cruise to Alaska last summer and at one port (either Skagway, Juneau, or Ketchikan) I bought a necklace from a jewelry store that was called "Northern Lights" for $10. They had matching earrings for the same price but I bought the necklace only. Real or not real, it didn't matter...I loved it. It was just a small, round stone. We moved about 6 weeks ago, and somehow...in the midst of moving...the necklace is missing. It's driving me nuts and I am really mad about it. So, now I wanted to see if I could possibly find the jewelry store who sold it to me and contact them about possibly ordering another one. I can picture the store from the outside, but cannot exactly recall the port, the store's name, or any of it. I am hoping perhaps one of you guys could help me!! I would really greatly appreciate any help you could offer. Thanks! It's very much appreciated it.

      -Alison

      Getting around

      by mbynum Online Now Sep 10, 2007 at 7:11 PM

      I RV'd to Homer in the summer of 2004 and fell in love with the whole Homer experience: the scenery and the galleries and the food (!) and the friendly folk. It's taken me this long to be able to return to Alaska, but am planning to leave Huntsville, AL early May, with my eventual destination being 2-3 weeks in Homer! I don't tow a car behind my motor home and was wondering what the options are for renting a vehicle for my stay. I've thought about buying a little scooter, but figure I could rent a lot of cars for the expense of the scooter and the rack. I'm a retired teacher and travel alone with my little doglets. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
      Peace,
      Mimi

    • Seldovia,Halibut cove

      by travelbug014 Online Now Jun 8, 2007 at 10:35 PM

      I would like to visit Seldovia and Halibut Cove from Homer. What are the best tours available ? Will these be separate trips?If these are separate trips, I am looking for minimum repetition between the 2. I like hiking & biking & browsing art galleries and local shops. I would like to spend a decent amount of time at both places and visiting landmarks in the Kachemak bay & state park. but don't want to spend too much time waiting for the boat back to Homer. I also read about (some form of - sea plane etc) hourly flights between Seldovia and Homer. ARe these worth? Thanks.

      is it worth it to take the expensive boat to go to the other side of homer split?

      by 9tigers Online Now May 31, 2007 at 2:21 PM

      I know there is a state park across from homer, but the boat trip is expensive, is it worth it to go, if so, which one is more worth it.
      also I noticed that the boat trip to there is not offered everyday.

      any information are appreciated.
      I would like to find out more informaiton about Homer hiking trails, not those super long ones, like 4-5 miles are perfect.

      Homer in July

      by Wendy67 Online Now May 16, 2005 at 7:27 AM

      I'm researching a trip to Alaska over the summer to Homer, via Anchorage. I'm wondering how much time to spend in Homer - we're planning on five days - hoping to fish, kayak, hike, visit galleries, try the local brews, etc. Is a trip to the fjords from Homer a day trip or does it require a few days?

      I'm also looking for info on rental cars for the drive between Anchorage and Homer. I'd rather not fly, but enjoy the scenery on the way down the peninsula. In my research, I've not come upon too many options for rentals.

      Lodging suggestions? I'm looking at the Homer Inn and Spa for a bit of pampering after fishing for halibut all day, but it seems that there are several popular places to stay.

      All suggestions welcome. Thanks!

      I'm going to be in Homer for 3-4 days at the end of August and am trying to decide where to stay, if I stay outside of town, is it a pain to drive in and find parking in town? Thanks.
