Even though the Boulder area is very scenic and historic, it is not a traditional "vacation destination". The countryside consists of a valley surrounded by the Elkhorn Mountain range.
The town of Boulder has two grocery stores, several cafes, taverns, bank, post office, hardware store, library, hair salon, museum, senior center (lunch program 3 days a week), thrift shop, outdoor swimming pool, bowling alley, gas station, auto repair, child daycare, parks and churchs.
Medical services include a dentist, a county health nurse, and a medical clinic. The medical clinic is open during weekdays with Physicians Assistant on hand. Doctors may be seen by appointment.
Medical emergencies may require the services of 911 or a drive to Helena or Butte. Rx refill services are available locally at Elkhorn Pharmacy.
Expect inclement weather at most any time of the season. Brief, intermittent snow fall may occur through June. Scattered snow may start as early as mid September. Prepare yourself and your car accordingly. Summers are usually hot and dry with intermittent wind and rain. Peak visitor season is June through early October - busiest at the beginning of the month. Be sure to reserve accommodations in advance.
Mail may be received in c/o the Free Enterprise Mine, PO Box 67, or general delivery. UPS and FedEx will deliver to the Mine: 149 Depot Hill Road, Boulder MT 59632.
