Getting to the North Shore may not be easy, but it’s undoubtedly worth it for those who do make the journey. Here are the top things to do and places to visit.
Regarded by many as one of the most scenic roads in the country, Highway 61 runs 149 miles from Duluth to the Canadian border, adjacent to Lake Superior.
The windy two lane highway offers frequent vistas of the lake and surrounding boreal forest, while passing through a series of small mining and fishing towns, now thriving off tourism. The must-see pulloffs along the way include Split Rock Lighthouse, Palisade Head cliffs, Caribou Falls, and Devil’s Kettle (the mystery of the North Shore).
