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

I Loved the Trip

I made a counterclockwise loop of Lake Superior beginning at Duluth on August 4-15, 2013. I made overnight stops at Iron Mountain, Michigan; Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan (2 nights); Wawa, Ontario; Nipigon, Ontario (2 nights); Thunder Bay, Ontario (2 nights); Grand Portage, Minnesota (2 nights); and Duluth, Minnesota. I loved the trip. Special features were the many waterfalls and lighthouses, Young’s General Store in Wawa, the museum in Nipigon, amethyst More

What a Trip!

We left on August 8, returned on August 21. From Chicago to Marquette, clockwise around the Lake. What a trip! Spent the night in Bayfield, Grand Portage, although did not go to Isle Royale. On to Thunder Bay, Wawa, of course, Sault Ste. Marie. It was all so lovely. Just looked at some of the pictures. They don’t do it justice. Just wish we had done this when we were More

Many Favorite and Memorable Spots

I joined a group of 20 women to bicycle around Lake Superior. Our tour, arranged by the company WomanTours, which began and ended in Duluth, Minnesota, was scheduled for July 8 to August 2, 2013. Our first actual day of bicycling was July 9th and our last day of riding was August 1st. We began by traveling east with our first stop being Bayfield, Wisconsin. After that we spent 11 days More

Rich Beyond Our Expectations

My husband and I circumnavigated Lake Superior by car from July 15-27, 2013 – an extraordinary trip. We stayed in motels in Duluth, Thunder Bay, Marathon, Batchawana Bay (2 nights), Sault Ste. Marie, MI (2 nights), Marquette, Copper Harbor (3 nights), and Ironwood. Our invaluable guides were your Lake Superior Travel Guide magazine, Hunt’s Guide to the U.P., Around the Shores of Lake Superior by Margaret Bogue and the 1940 More

Beautiful Ride

What a beautiful ride! Will do the trip again! In August 1988, we decided to circle Lake Superior a few months after our wedding. We took our old rusty Cavalier, spent over a week, taking our time, and camping along the lakeshore. In July 2013, we decided to circle the great lake again, as part of our 25th anniversary tours. This time we did it on motorcycles. In an earlier More

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
