Live Alaska Year Round

HOMER

sywtli-homer-harbor-l 
 
Known as the "Cosmic Hamlet by the Sea," Homer is full of art, culture, and year round activities. People come to Homer for variety of reasons, and never leave. One thing all year round Homerites have in common is a love of adventure, the outdoors, wildlife, fresh air, creativity and authenticity. A recent Huffington Post article ranked Homer #1 in 8 Quirky Spots Where You're Free To Be You And Me.
Homer has been called the Halibut capital of the world. The 4.5 mile spit draws throngs of tourists each year, as well as supports seasonal work. Fishing, toursim, and oilfield work, combined with a wide range of entrpenuers comprise the workforce of the just over 5,000 year round residents. In the winter months the community still is bustling with community events and school activities.
If you are raising a family, there are few better places to raise healthy, independent, capable, community oriented, well-educated children.
The community offers many enrichment opportunities:

ANCHOR POINT

Why Choose Anchor Point?

36871 131075193580348 131073963580471 230414 351357 n   

Anchor Point is as desirable a geographical location for harmonious human and wildlife habitation today as it was in the late 1700’s when Captain Cook saw the fires of Denaina villages on the beach near the mouth of the Anchor River, or in the late 1800’s when miners sought the glitter of gold at the same location, or in the 1940’s when hardy homesteaders landed on that beach to stake out and patent 160 acre parcels that would become the now thriving community of Anchor Point. 

The prolific runs of Salmon, Steelhead, and Dolly Varden in the river, nearby Razor Clam beaches, and the abundance of Halibut and migrating Salmon in the salt water of Cook Inlet are still the primary draw to this rural community.

The social fabric of the community is made up of several churches, an active Chamber of Commerce, an excellent K-8 school, a vibrant Senior organization and facility, a community library, the VFW post.Critical community services include trained EMT and Fire volunteers and facility, Post Office, State Trooper headquarters, Health clinic, Dental office, public water, and the boat launch.

Other desirable amenities include a 9 hole golf course, private airpark, grocery market, package store, hardware store, mini-storage, restaurants, lodging, competent contractors,  a skilled workforce, real estate and accounting professionals, and many home based entrepreneurs. Gravel, gas, property and sales taxes are cheaper here.

The retirement and second home market is strong and growing, as well as the young-family first- home segment, and for the same reasons, proximity to sea and rivers and the back country of the Caribou Hills, and a short drive to Homer and the Bay.

This is truly the “Gold Coast” of Southcentral Alaska. We invite visitors and neighbors to “Come to play, come to stay”.
