The town of Kenai is located at the mouth of the Kenai River, overlooking a wilderness preserve filled with marine animals and various waterfowl, all unique to Alaska. The town features a historic waterfront area and the Kenai Beach, a great destination for recreation and beachfront fun. The nearby Kenai Landing was originally a cannery but is not filled with activities, dining options, a market, shopping, museums, galleries and a theatre. It is truly a unique Alaskan landmark and considered a "Cultural and Recreational Interest Area." If indoor entertainment is not your cup of tea, there is plenty to enjoy near the beachfront. Scenic landscapes are highlighted by hiking trails, and plenty of chances to go salmon, halibut, and trout fishing. Horseback riding on the trails gives you a chance to cover more land and see more wildlife. There are also a variety of flight tours of the area that expose visitors to bear sightings, one of the thrills of visiting Alaska. If you enjoy the bounty of natural surroundings, as well as the hustle and bustle of a quaint, charming town, Kenai may be the perfect destination for you. This is especially true if you love beachside fun. The Kenai City Beach is one of the gems in a town that is loved by locals and by visitors.
