The Small Wisconsin Town That Will Make You Swear You’re Actually Out West

Boulder Junction is a small town with fewer than 1,000 people way, way up north. It’s just miles from the Upper Peninsula and it’s tucked in among a ton of small lakes. It’s a true Northwoods town, but sometimes, when you look at the pictures here, it’s easy to imagine you’re somewhere totally different. We don’t have much in the way of elevation or hills here, but with the towering trees and epic forest, along with small, reflective lakes and abundant wildlife, it doesn’t take much to imagine that Boulder Junction is actually somewhere a bit more west.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
