We Did It!

Dear Circle Tour Club: WE DID IT! My girlfriend and I finally did the Lake Superior Circle Tour! On June 12, we left Dayton and returned on June 20. We started the tour at Sault Ste. Marie, watching 2 freighters in the locks – one going east and one going west. We then crossed the International Bridge and stopped at the Visitor’s Center to exchange money (and to get a More

We Highly Recommend the Circle Tour

We did the Circle Tour from June 10-19, 2013. Some of the highlights and our favorites. Duluth – Comfort Suites Canal Park. Very nice hotel. Especially like the location. Enjoyed coffee each morning at Caribou Coffee. Duluth Pack is our favorite shop. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. Grand Marais – We stayed at Best Western Plus Superior Inn & Suites. Very nice rooms, comfortable and clean. Liked the beds. We More

Our Little Adventure

I’m requesting membership for our friends from Sundre, Alberta, who along with us completed the Circle Tour of Lake Superior last summer. Barry & Candy Panrucker along with border collies, Cujo & Buddy, AND ancient (20 years) cat Stache (as in moustache), arrived in Duluth August 24 … continuing on next day to meet us at our home on beautiful Lake Superior from where we all left for our little More

I Was Not Disappointed

Here is a synopsis of my entire trip. I rode my Lake Superior Circle Tour on my bike (really a Harley-Davidson with an aftermarket trike kit) this past July (2012). I did the tour solo and rode it clockwise. I had been planning this trip for several months. Each year since retirement I take an extended ride during the summer. Being originally from Michigan, I had spent a lot of More

We Will Do It Again Some Day

I’m writing to let you know that we have completed our Circle Tour of Lake Superior and wow, what an experience. My wife, Nancy, and I left our home in Westerville, Ohio, onboard our 2005 Honda Goldwing Trike and trailer on Thursday, August 18, 2011. We spent the first night in Saginaw, Michigan, and then traveled to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, on Friday. We spent the next two nights at More

Our Circle Tour

Monday, July 11-Tuesday, July 18, 2011. Our Lake Superior Circle Tour began with a very strategic stop at the Lake Superior Magazine (LSM) office (310 E. Superior Street, Duluth, Minnesota) where we spoke to the helpful staff and purchased Lake Superior, the Ultimate Guide to the Region published by LSM. This book was a helpful addition to all of the maps and tour books we received from AAA (Automobile Club More

I Hope to Ride It Again Sometime

I completed the tour on a BMW R1200RT in August 2009, starting and ending in Ironwood, Michigan. I headed west along the shore and spent nights in Thunder Bay and White River, Ontario, and Paradise, Michigan. It was a great trip, and I am proud of my Circle Tour pin. I was particularly impressed with the Winnie-the-Pooh story in White River. I hope to ride it again sometime. Kenneth Neher, More

Some High Points

Stopping in Schreiber, ON, during a family reunion that involved nearly the whole town (except for a different branch of the family – we didn’t delve into that too deeply). Shipping out of Grand Portage to spend some days diving around Isle Royale. A wonderful meal of very fresh trout eaten a bite at a time while standing around the barbecue. The Duluth vista against the Lake Superior backdrop. The More
