Lake Superior North Shore: Self-Guided Audio Driving Tour

2. Lake Superior North Shore: Self-Guided Audio Driving Tour

Don’t miss a thing as your favorite audio tour narrator guides you along Lake Superior's North Shore on Highway 61 between Grand Portage and Duluth to not-to-be-missed points of interest, with fascinating stories, tips and directions along the way. Follow the suggested itineraries, or divide the commentary and create your own half, full or multi day sightseeing trips. Minnesota’s North Shore Scenic Drive is a gateway to pristine wilderness, spectacular Lake Superior beaches and endless waterfalls. With over a dozen state parks and waysides along historic Highway 61 in northern Minnesota, one of only 27 designated All-American Roads in the United States, there’s something for everyone to experience. Major Highlights: Bean and Bear Lake Hike Betty's Pies Carrying Place and Grand Portage Glensheen Mansion Gooseberry Falls Grand Marias Hovland Dock Judge C.R. Magney State Park Palisade Head Split Rock Lighthouse Includes: Lake Superior North Shore, Hwy 61 (Duluth to/from Grand Portage) From the harbor of Duluth, one of the world’s farthest inland ports for oceangoing ships, to the ancient “Great Carrying Place” - an ancient transcontinental trading route near the Canadian border - the North Shore Scenic Drive is abundant with history, geology, and plenty of places to explore in any season. Hikers, cyclists and sightseers will love spending time outdoors on trails, at viewpoints and seeking waterfalls. When it’s time, head into one of the delightful and charming towns to shop and eat along a route that will transport you to the 1920s, when Highway 61 was still a dirt road winding up the shore. The tour is designed so it can be driven in either direction. If starting out and returning back to Duluth, drive north as far as you can go and time allows, hopefully including a night or two along the way. If time is tight, Grand Marais is a logical turnaround point. The tour goes the entire way to Grand Portage State Park at the Canadian Border. If you are going out and back, we will talk about all the sights and share the stories on the return trip so you don’t miss a thing. It’s also a complete tour experience to do the drive in just one direction, north from Duluth and cross the Canadian Border. Or, start in Grand Portage and tour southbound to Duluth.
