With Two Extra Side Trips

I completed the Circle Tour of Lake Superior between Sept. 28, 2013 (when I left Stratford, ON where I live now) and Oct. 20. The trip included two extra side trips: a rail trip from Sault Ste. Marie, ON to Hearst, ON through the Agawa Canyon and a foray into Winnipeg, MB. The strictly Lake Superior Circle Tour from Sault Ste. Marie, ON to Sault Ste. Marie, MI was from More

Never Disappointed

For my birthday this year, my husband treated me to a trip around Lake Superior. On September 25 we left Thunder Bay and drove to Wawa where we stayed the night. The next day we carried on to Sault Ste. Marie (spectacular drive). We took the Agawa Canyon Train Tour on the 27th and drove on to Houghton, Michigan, on the 28th. On the 29th we toured the picturesque Keweenaw More

Then we traveled on to Marathon, Ontario; spent the night and noodled the city sights. Next morning we traveled back home, More

We Had a Wonderful Time

Hi, My wife and I completed the Circle Tour this summer. We started in Duluth on July 18, 2011, and drove counterclockwise around the lake and ended the tour in Duluth on August 9, 2011. We were disappointed in the Minnesota government shutdown, which radically changed our plans, however we managed okay. Highlights include Keweenaw Peninsula; Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan; Wawa and Nipigon, Ontario; Grand Marais, Minnesota; Gooseberry Falls State More

One of My Favorite Vacations

In October of 1999, a friend from Chicago and I took one of my favorite vacations ever – we drove around Lake Superior! We left the night of September 30th from Minneapolis in my brand new Chevy Silverado truck that had less than 200 miles on it. We drove all night straight to Thunder Bay, Ontario, with a short stop in Duluth at Canal Park to ‘officially’ kick off our More
