There isn't much for the local kids to do so they just drag main - back and forth, again and again. While you're at it though, take a look at some the old buildings that were pretty nice at one time, especially the old bank. It must have been a beauty in its heyday.
It's not exactly something to do, but Howard is the seat of the Elk County government. So you can walk through the court house - just to say you did!
