BEST REINDEER OMELET
[Gwennie's Restaurant, Anchorage]
In the early 1970s, Gwennie's was a brothel for workers constructing the Trans-Alaska Pipeline. Since 1981 it's had a tamer existence—as a family restaurant. Gwennie's serves a delicacy that most visitors have never whipped up at home: a reindeer omelet. The recipe? Five eggs, cheese, and lots of spicy Rudolph.
DETAILS: An omelet costs $10. (Gwennie's, 4333 Spenard Road, 907-243-2090)

BEST HOT SPRINGS
[Chena Hot Springs]
Soak in 101- to 105-degree water at Chena Hot Springs, a 35,000-gallon geothermal pool an hour's drive from Fairbanks. Spend a night at nearby Chena Hot Springs Resort, where kids can splash around in the indoor swimming pool.
DETAILS: A day pass is $10 per person (minimum age 18). Children can use the pool for $6. Doubles ($108-$140) include use of the springs and pool. (Chena Hot Springs Resort, 800-478-4681, www.chenahotsprings.com)
