a note from nina
mid-summer

Time on the North Shore is part exploration, part relaxation. It is the pace of small towns, the woods, and the Lake Superior’s shores. What does that mean?

Hike, bike, shop, golf, paddle! Just be adaptable to the weather, the conditions and the number of other people trying to do the same thing. This website is packed with Plan B things to do, places to eat and shop, attractions, activities and places to hang out on the shores of the big lake.

And events – from short naturalist programs to live music to weekend-long festivals.

Have fun and be kind,

– Nina
