The small town of Homer, Alaska is a favorite destination for travelers, and a wonderful location for weddings and special events. Located 225 miles from Anchorage on the southwestern end of the Kenai Peninsula, Homer has a stunning location and an array of attractions.
The town is best known for its 4-mile-long spit that extends into Kachemak Bay. At its end is a busy harbor, fine restaurants, art galleries, and lodging places. Behind Homer, the hills rise sharply, making it possible to go from sea level to 1500 feet in a short drive.
Homer is an increasingly popular place for destination weddings--from small elopements to lavish affairs. Several outstanding wedding venues are available, including the one-of-a-kind mansion at Second Star, a gorgeous beachside lodge at Driftwood Inn, and Lands End Resort at the end of the Homer Spit. A multitude of bed and breakfasts and rental homes provide settings for more intimate weddings.
