The city of Kenai is the crown jewel of the Kenai Peninsula. The main highlight of the place is Kenai River Salmon Fishery which attracts tourists from all across the state. The magnificent views of the Alaska Range lend a touch of unparalleled beauty to the city’s backdrop. Scouring the waters offshore for beluga whales from the corner of the ridge at Beluga Whale Lookout is a rejuvenating experience. The Kenai Visitor and Cultural Center, which is only a short distance away, is a wellspring of area’s history with numerous exhibits of historical importance.
