Homer looked a little like the Jersey Shore to me.
I like Homer, but don't think I would want to live there.
I like Seward. I want to try the Mount Marathon race some day.
The 4th is awesome in Seward though. Have had some great times in that town.
Been to Valdez, too. It was nice, what I could see of it. Clouds were down nearly to ground level when I was there.
Sounds like Juneau more than half the year. About 2/3rds of our days are overcast or mostly cloudy.
Valdez and Whittier got bombed with snow last winter. I flew over Valdez and many of the buildings were buried. Whittier stopped counting snowfall at 550"
