Circling the Pond

This is our first long adventure with our “new” Little Guy teardrop-style camper. We enjoyed being off the ground, dry and warm during the mostly damp days of June 24 – July 7. Our major interests were fly fishing, canoeing and finding EarthCaches, but the tour guide led us to other treasures including many well-done visitor center displays. Our tour began in Grand Marais, Minnesota, where we spent two nights at More

Great Scenery

My husband and I have been to Lake Superior five times, beginning in September 2005. During that trip with my brother and sister-in-law, we stayed in Michigan, visiting Sault Ste. Marie, Tahquamenon Falls, Munising and Copper Harbor among other places. We especially enjoyed going through the locks in Sault Ste. Marie and the boat ride to see Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Out time was limited, so we were able to More

One of Our Favorite Vacations

My husband and I completed the 1,300-mile circle tour in September this year. We both agree it was one of our favorite vacations ever. We took nine days but feel we could have have taken two weeks to have more time to enjoy some of the attractions. We started in Sault Ste. Marie, ON, spending our first night at the Best Northern Motel in Wawa with dinner at the Kinniwabi Pines More

We’ve Circled!

On September the 5th we completed the Lake Superior Circle Tour clockwise from Duluth to Duluth. We took 12 days for our tour and had overnights at: Duluth, MN; Virginia, MN; Grand Marais, MN; Grand Portage, MN; Thunder Bay, ON; Wawa, ON; Strongs, MI; Munising, MI; Hancock, MI; Bayfield, WI; and Duluth, MN. Some of our favorite experiences were: seeing the massive Hull-Rust-Mahoning open pit mine in Hibbing; watching a More

Favorite Spots Were in Thunder Bay

We completed the Lake Superior Circle Tour from July 11-15, 2016. Our favorite spots were the two days we spent in Thunder Bay touring Fort William, Amethyst Mine Panorama and Sleeping Giant Provincial Park. Being from Minnesota, we had already toured the North Shore between Duluth and Grand Portage several times, so it was great to see Lake Superior the rest of the way around!

So Much to Explore

We finished June 28 with the International Bridge Walk at the twin Saults and the Engineers day at the Soo Locks. Favorite places include Lake of the Clouds, Whitefish Point, Pictured Rocks, Apostle Islands, Minnesota’s north shore, amethyst mines, Kakabeka Falls and Gooseberry Falls. So much to explore, so little time! Our not-so-favorite was the major detour (4 hours) caused by one bridge being washed out! Ann & Paul Heilborn, More

A Wonderful Vacation

Hello from Paul and Phyllis in the state of Delaware. We have just completed the Circle Tour with the help of your guide which we couldn’t have done without. We can make the following comments to help with your guide: The Inn on Lake Superior was great – good location, bicycles to borrow and even s’mores in the evening. Fitger’s was great for dinner and Zeitgeist was, too. The Northern More

An Excellent Trip

My husband and I completed the Circle Tour September 7-14, 2013. We started from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan (where we live), and went clockwise around the Lake. (Several years ago we started from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, and went counterclockwise as far as Terrace Bay, Ontario, but didn’t have time to go all the way.) The trip this month was a fulfillment of a years-long desire. We started off in More

We Camped on Our Trip

My dog and I just completed the circle tour in 12 wonderful days. It was supposed to be a trip with my Mother as well but she passed away last spring and so I decided to do it in memory of her. Start date: August 15, end date: August 26. Our trip started with a dog agility show in Thunder Bay and then we also spent a few days with More
