Travel Tips

Book early – lodging is getting hard to find, that said, here are some specials for winter.

Be Patient – every business is short staffed, we’ve got road construction and it is busy

Have Fun – look at what to do in each community, check out the mile-by-mile list, find a map, an event, and see every place you can access Lake Superior.

Quiet Time

It is quiet time on the North Shore. The pace changes. With fewer visitors, locals run into each other and stop to talk. Some businesses close for a well-deserved rest and some close for the season. Hiking is still magnificent, a good way to get out as we wait for snow accumulations. Inland lakes are skimming over with ice and Lutsen Mountains is making snow and open weekends.

The North Shore is ideal for shopping small and local; check out the amazing number of craft sales, bazaars, art shows and events starting November 20. New this year – weekend offering of Tea aboard the historic Edna G – how cool is that?!

For outdoor fun – wave watching at any of these Lake Superior public access spots. Windy cloudy November brings Shipwrecks to mind as this is the month when the nor’easters come ripping down the lake creating magnificent waves and troubled seas.

Be safe and enjoy,

– Nina
