The coastal city of Kenai has no shortage of beautiful nature, history or local culture and traditions. Located right on the mouth of the Kenai River, the city is the oldest on the peninsula, and was originally settled by Russian fur traders, a history reflected in the Old Town.
Be sure to start your visit at the Kenai Visitors & Cultural Center for an introduction to the rich heritge of the city. There's also a small Russian Orthodox Church from the 1800s which you can visit to get a feel of the Russian influence in this part of the world. 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. Fishing is one of the main pastimes here and you can either join in or observe the local community dip net for salmon.
Visit during summertime for warm weather and opportunities to go fishing.
