As the weather gets colder and the darkness sets in, our internal thermometers and body clocks get thrown off-kilter.

After all, you can’t underestimate all the things that a little bit of self-care (and a great day at the spa) can do for your outlook on life. So why not treat yourself this winter in Wasilla?

Wrap It Up in Style
As evening draws near, head over to (12) Bearpaw River Brewing Company to indulge in a beer or craft soda or try a flight of Alaskan beers at (13) The Last Frontier Brewing Company.
