The stage coach doesn't run through Boulder, Montana anymore, but the town didn't die with the stage. Boulder sits halfway between Butte and Helena on the intersection of Interstate 15 and MT Highway 69. Its location makes it an ideal place to stop. No matter when you come, you'll probably find something going on. The Boulder Farmer's Market offers up local produce, meat and crafts every Thursday from July to September. Every September the Chamber of Commerce hosts a Music and Art Festival which showcases local and statewide performers, as well as displays by local artists. The Fiddle Fest, the Boulder Car Show, and the Christmas Bazaar round out the list of Boulder's biggest events. The events all offer unique and local, one-of-a-kind fare that will make a Montana vacation a memorable one.
A number of state parks lie within an hour's drive of Boulder, most notably Elkhorn State Park. This ghost town from Montana's silver boom has excellent examples of frontier architecture and beautiful hiking and picnicking sites.
Add a relaxing interlude to your Montana vacation with a stay at the Boulder Hot Springs. Originally designed as a resort and spa for Helena and Butte's wealthiest families, this renovated and redesigned resort offers geothermal hot springs just right for swimming and soaking.
This bustling little town is full of unique character, and it isn't even out of the way.
