Additional Info~
One of Homer's Newspapers
Homer is a quaint drinking town with a fishing problem or so the bumper stickers around town say. lol There are things to do here..just gotta get creative as it does get dark real early in the winters and stays light real late in the summers(loved that). Housing has a bon fire pit and that was the hang out in the summer as well as the winters...I do recommend Rain and snow gear a just never know!!
