Homer is a city on the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska. It is known for being "the end of the road." There are signs that Native American people lived in the area as early as 6000 BC, there are now about 5,500 people living in Homer.[1] The most notable feature of Homer is the Homer Spit, a 4.5-mile-long (7.2 km) finger of land sticking out into Kachemak Bay. The town's harbor and many of its fishing and tourism-related businesses are on the Spit.
