Atomic City ID

Main street of Atomic City ID...
Nothing happens on Main Street of Atomic City...
Atomic City in Idaho is definitely off the grid. It's about 20 miles off the main interstate at the end of a non-descript gravel road.

I wanted to see it because I was intrigued by its retro-future name.

It's nearly a ghost town now, home to just 30 people. It features a small stock car race track which appears to be still active, but, except for a couple of grizzled old characters -- one of them sporting two artificial legs -- it seemed deserted in the middle of the day.

The only bar in town... closed for business.
The only bar in town is long shuttered...

An oasis in the desert...
No longer serving cold ones...
