Visitors can visit a unique collection of businesses - an art gallery, a fudge factory, a tea room and a custom cowboy hat shop. Jimmy Jock Boardwalk is named after a local Chinese restauranteur who operated a restaurant on this same site in the earlier days. Today, a U-shaped boardwalk similar to a frontier town stands.
