Soldotna is the seat of the Kenai Peninsula Borough in south-central Alaska. As of the 2010 census, the population was 4,163. The Kenai Peninsula extends about 150 miles southwest from the Chugach Mountains, south of Anchorage. It's separated from the mainland on the west by Cook Inlet and on the east by Prince William Sound. Soldatna is a vibrant, growing city which offers a lot for residents and tourists alike. First, it's known as being home to the largest King Salmon in the world. Fishing the famous Kenai River is an amazing experience for anglers. Other outdoor activities include canoeing, hiking, biking, wildlife viewing, camping, skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating and snowmobiling (or snow-machining, as it's called by locals.) Of course, the breathtaking scenery provides unparallel photographic opportunities. Other unique activities include flight-seeing from small aircraft over the ice fields, float plane trips and whale watching. Soldotna even has a local golf course, as well as go-carts, a bowling alley, fitness center and many city parks to enjoy. The Kenai Peninsula is home to Kenai Fjords National Park and Kachemak Bay State Park. Other towns on the peninsula include Homer, Seward and Kenai.
