Okay, okay, I know what you are thinking and no; this probably isn’t the type of boardwalk you were picturing… but hear me out! This winding wooden platform is your ticket to the past by magically transporting you and your family back in time to when gunslingers ruled the streets of Old Dodge City, Ms. Kitty still kicked up her heels, and ice cream came in the form of a float.

During your trip across the boardwalk at the Boot Hill Museum, make sure to get your picture taken at the Old West Photo Parlor (after all, it isn’t every day that you get to travel back in time!), enjoy a delicious country-style dinner, peruse the impressive 60,000 artifacts housed within the museum displays, and shop the old time store!

For more information on admission prices, times, collections, dinner reservations, and more, be sure to visit the Boot Hill Museum’s website.
