Travel Tips

Book early – lodging is getting hard to find, that said, here are some specials for late autumn and early 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

The last week of October ushers in 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, though you may want to add some blaze orange to your wardrobe as hunters are in search of grouse/spruce hens and the firearm deer season is November 6-21. State Parks are a safe place to walk, hike, stop as hunting is [mostly] not allowed.

More 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
