Hi, we have just finished our Lake Superior Circle Tour! We started from Sault Ste. Marie and finished there. We started on Sept. 17 and ended Sept. 24. We did it as a couple, driving our SUV and using local motels to stay. We hiked a few parks as we are avid hikers. That was a very intense drive but truly worth it!
Lake Superior is majestic and a bit different from Lake Michigan (we live in the Chicago suburbs). There was no favorite spot as each part was different: I love the remoteness of Canada, friendly people and amazing views. Minnesota was just a joy, driving so close to Lake Superior – amazing hiking trails and waterfalls – and two days was not enough to see it all! Wisconsin was great – we took a cruise to Apostle Islands – but kind of pricey as they charged you for tiny bitty waterfall or access to the lake. Michigan was very cozy although there was not a straight way to go near the shore.
