Chicken, Alaska

We can't attest to your odds of hitting a big score here, but how could anyone resist trying his luck at a place called the Chicken Gold Camp & Outpost?

Right?

There you get the best of the old world, with modern comforts ... a tour, actual panning for gold you get to keep ... followed by a nice cappuccino and a fine dinner on the deck.

Want to do it again? Stay the night in the campground or rent a cabin ... next day enjoy a kayak trip on the river or some gold panning after breakfast in the cafe.
