We toured the Kenai Peninsula from Seward to Soldotna and Homer for a day. The route is visible on the map below and is known as the Sterling Highway.
The views to the west across Cook Inlet to the Chigmit Mountains in Lake Clark National Park and Preserve are striking. Beautiful and seemingly totally uninhabited.
The Town of Homer was anything but uninhabited; better compared to OOB or Ocean City. Homer Spit is a 4.5 mile bar of gravel. After the 1964 earthquake it sank more than 4 feet, so must be narrower, but it is a major port and tourist attraction.
