Travel Tips for Kenai
When we did this trip I wasn't a member of VT! So I was just taking pictures of the team. But now I'm scrambling to come up with some pictures! haha Well, behind the boys you can see the locals all lined up at the mouth of the river for their subsistance fishery. They use a net that is mounted on the end of a very long pole. It is held out in the current until you feel a fish in your net then you make your way back to shore with your catch and do it all over again! It looked like a blast!
Definitly the Big Kmart, which...
Definitly the Big Kmart, which is in the center of the city. We don't have much in the manner of malls or major shopping centers, lots of little stuff though. I would then go out to the beach, just five minutes away, and show off the view of the inlet. I have lived just north of Kenai (Nikiski) for about two years now. One of the things that I appreciate the most is the size of the town and the quality of the people in it. The city is so small and cozy it really makes you feel right at home.
The fondest memory is with a group of friends on top of Mount Alyeska at the Kenai Peninsula. This place is one of the most famous skiing place in Alaska during the winter, and it has a good location being near to Anchorage.
Bachelorettes in Alaska
The highly shamed Fox show "Bachelorettes in Alaska" was actually filmed at the Kenai Princess Lodge. This is a photo of the main "stage" area for the filming of each episode. The staff members at the lodge who were present for the filming had little to say about the show, but the locals were unimpressed, even embarassed, that such a show had been filmed in Alaska
Beach Access for Dip Netting
The turn for the Kenai River South Shore Beach Access is a little further west than the Log Cabin Inn. Turn north onto Cannery Road from Kalifornsky Beach Road and follow the Beach Access signs to Dunes Road. Probably a week or two earlier the South Shore was crowded with dip netters trying to catch salmon; however, the beach was almost deserted when I was there. There is a salmon season fee of $10.00 and 4WD only.
