Afterward, wander around the Kenai City Museum, Natural History Exhibits and Contemporary Art Shows for a full up-to-date lowdown on Kenai.
For some nature, head to the river and Kenai Landing for a great spot to watch wildlife and snap some photos. In this area, you can often see Beluga Whales plus migrating birds, not to mention the abundance of fish, and other critters. Back on land, look for moose and caribou.
