Homer is the Best Place for a Couple’s Getaway in Alaska. Here’s Why! 

Small Town Charm 

The small town of Homer, Alaska, is the perfect destination for a couple’s getaway. Our area’s downtown, known as Old Town Homer, is filled with coffee shops, restaurants, boutique shops, museums, and more. It’s also walkable from nearly every one of our accommodations, it’s easy to walk together each morning to grab a coffee!  

There are also many great restaurants in Old Town Homer that are perfect for a date night dinner. One of our favorites is AJ’s OldTown Steakhouse & Tavern. This casual fine-dining establishment offers a variety of fresh-catch seafood and USDA-prime beef steaks. Don’t close out your tab before a nightcap with one of AJ’s signature dessert drinks like the chocolate milk martini 

Outdoor Recreation 

The Last Frontier makes up more than 50 percent of the United States’ wilderness. No trip to Homer would be complete without an adventure into the Alaskan wilderness! No matter what your outdoor interests are, we offer (or can plan!) an excursion for you and your special someone.
