Three Days in Homer, Alaska

Three Days in Homer, Alaska, Homer, Alaska (B)

I spent three days in Homer and despite somewhat crummy weather, I really liked this part of my two-week trip in Alaska.

I found the best place to stay with a spectacular view and an extremely short drive to both the Homer Spit and the downtown area. The White House Inn is so cute! I went toward the end of the season, so with the quiet time, the owner upgraded me to an ocean view room. My room was the King Salmon Room and decorated in red, white and blue.

The owner was also very responsive and provided tips like I could take any halibut I caught to Captain Patties, and they would take a few dollars off the halibut entrée listed on the menu and cook it for me.

I first tried steamed clams with reindeer sausage and kale at Fresh Catch Café. This restaurant was packed and my enormous meal was absolutely spectacular! I highly recommend making a reservation here.

I went to Captain Patties to try their halibut since I didn’t catch any of my own (more on that later). Captain Patties was also very busy and the halibut was good, but if I didn’t want to try a bunch of different restaurants, I would have been back at the Fresh Catch Café on the Spit. ......
