Travel Therapy in Idaho: The 5 Weirdest Things You Can Do in Idaho

We know what you’re thinking: “Advanced is really trying to sell me on Idaho?” Yep, and here’s why! The state of Idaho not only has a lot of livable and affordable cities for travel therapists, there are plenty of attractions to both entertain and educate.

5 weird things to do while on travel assignment in Idaho

Sleep in A Giant Dog 

Strange but true, you can sleep in a giant dog in Idaho. At 30 feet tall, Sweet Willy is the world’s biggest beagle. In addition to his stature, he’s also a single-room bed and breakfast.

Ogle Some Famous Potatoes 

Ever wonder about the agricultural and commercial history of potatoes? Probably not but it’s interesting no less. Here you’ll find a giant potato sculpture and home of the world’s largest potato chip, a 25-inch long Pringle from 1991.

Simulate a Nuclear Meltdown

This one is especially great if you’re traveling with children! The world’s first nuclear power plant was opened in Idaho and visitors here can enjoy an interactive role-play of a nuclear meltdown.

View the Museum of Clean

Clean freaks will love the Museum of Clean! Set your eyes on the first vacuum and other old school cleaning techniques. If one thing is for sure, you’ll be grateful for modern-day tidying techniques.

Check out a Submarine, in the Desert

The nuclear submarine USS Hawkbill (SSN-666), aka “The Devil Boat,” sticks up out of the ground in one eerie roadside attraction.
