8 Fun Things To Do in Boulder Junction Wisconsin
Location: Boulder Junctionby @MissNortherner on Sep 18, 2018
1 | HIKE THE FALLISON LAKE TRAIL
Just ten minutes south of Boulder Junction, you’ll find Fallison Lake – a cute little 51-acre lake off of County Hwy N. There’s a picturesque hiking trail that skirts the perimeter of the lake, with multiple places to stop and enjoy the views or even have a picnic! The trail is well-marked and gently rolling. It’s an easy walk and a great way to get out into nature!
2 | TREAT YOURSELF TO A SUPPER CLUB
It’s nice to go somewhere special and get dressed up every now and then! I would highly recommend dining at The Guides Inn, a gourmet supper club near downtown Boulder Junction. From the elegant, Northwoods atmosphere to the cuisine cooked to perfection, The Guides Inn is an absolute must.
When we arrived, we were seated near the window overlooking a stunning flower garden and started the night with a glass of merlot and a crudité platter (I’m still daydreaming about that jalapeno-spinach cheese spread). From there, we were brought a cup of soup and then a salad. Our entrees arrived next, accompanied by a fresh-baked loaf of bread. The head chef made a personal visit to each table and later sent us four tastings of his homemade ice cream. It was an evening to remember and I’m counting down the days until I get to retu
3 | WALK UP AND DOWN MAIN STREET
I just adore Boulder Junction’s main street. It’s quaint, well-kept, and delightfully energetic. Shop owners prop their doors open, welcoming in both tourists and locals alike.
To get an all-encompassing experience of Boulder Junction’s main street, I suggest starting at Alder Lake Cranberry Shop and working your way west down the sidewalk. Relax with an ice cream cone at Mad Dog Jakes or swing into Aqualand Ale House for a bite to eat. Then meander down the other side of the street, ending back on the east end at the Blueberry Patch gift shop.
5 | GO FISHING
Did you know that Boulder Junction is the Musky Capital of the World? With nearly 200 lakes within a 10-mile radius, this modest, Northwoods town is known to be one the best places on earth to catch these massive fish. And with more than 50 Class A musky lakes, your odds of bringing home a keeper are pretty darn good.
6 | SWIM AND RELAX AT NICHOLS BEACH
Just 2.5 miles from downtown Boulder Junction is Nichols Beach, a great spot that’s open to the public. There’s a nice-sized parking lot, a gently-sloping park area, and a sandy beach perfect on a hot summers day.
7 | CANOE OR KAYAK THE MANY LAKES
One of the best things about northern Wisconsin is the number of lakes nearby. There are so many places to launch your boat and spend a relaxing day on the water! Whether you’re looking for a bigger lake to boat on or a small lake for a quiet paddle, you’ll have plenty of options!
