Kodiak Things to Do: 40 reviews and 55 photos
Kodiak has an amazing stretch of paved road heading south out of town for 40 miles. At the end of those very scenic forty miles you come to a T. A left turn takes you to Chiniak and a right takes you to Pasagshak and the rocket launch facility. Chiniak calls itself a town but there isn't anything you'd recognize as such. A post office and a school and a library. No stores but quite a few homes.
It is a wonderful feeling of freedom to be able to hop in the car and go for a drive, especially after 18 years living on a much smaller island with a whole lot less road.
All along the way are secluded beaches with spectacular vistas and miles of shoreline to beach comb. Lots of creeks and rivers with salmon. Bears. Sheep. Deer.
We've made the drive several times now. Our favorites (so far) is Myrtle Beach just before your reach Chiniak, and Fossil Beach at the end of the Pasagshak road.
