This Is The Most Hippie Town In Alaska And You Need To Visit
In many ways, Alaska is a land where hippies are right at home. All the forests and mountains give people space to live in freedom and peace. Nowhere in the state is more perfect for the tie-dye crowd than Homer. Welcome to the land where the Grateful Dead can be heard from the radios and patchouli is always wafting through the air. Yoga classes abound, there are vegetarian options, and the beach is the main attraction. Visit this hippie mecca and eat some granola while wearing sandals. Homer is the most hippie town in Alaska and you’ll love it as much as we do.
Homer is a beautiful seaside town on the farthest southern tip of the Kenai Peninsula. The beaches of the Kachemak Bay draw people from all over Alaska to this hippie town to enjoy the ocean.
Homer has a lot of great restaurants that are hippie friendly. A bonafide hippie restaurant in Alaska is hard to find, but the Cosmic Kitchen fits the bill!
This resident of Homer, a giant gecko that lives on the ceiling of the Cosmic Kitchen, keeps on truckin' all day long.
The Cosmic Kitchen is chock-full of peace and love. Prayer flags greet you and the smell of green tea will give you a zen vibe for the rest of the day. Head here for breakfast, lunch and Mexican food, made with love.
