On Site Features:
What kind of visit you can have:  Mostly soak up atmosphere.  The only power or amenities in town are at the Idaho Hotel, which is filled with antiques and the Post-Office Drugstore.  This is the kind of place you come to to get away from it all, so you'll probably want to make advance reservations to stay overnight.
