Well Worth It

My family and I were visiting family in Minnesota and were told about the Circle Tour of Lake Superior. We took in the views and a couple of ships at the Twin Ports of Duluth and Superior. The Upper Peninsula of Michigan offers some great views of the lake. The Canadian side is just as good. Some nice places to stop along the way include Ouimet Canyon, Split Rock Lighthouse, More

Everything I Had Dreamed Of

I completed the circle tour by vehicle, specifically in my Jeep Cherokee, in 2014. I started by driving through Wisconsin. I made it to the north shore and found Cornucopia. This little town will forever be in my top favorite destinations. I found it by accident as the road I was on turned into a detour due to construction. There was a motel on the corner and next to it, 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

Will Definitely Do It Again

We did the circle tour; left in August and spent three nights in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. We drove there from Superior, Wisconsin, in one day. The next day we did the 8-hour train ride to and from the Agawa Canyon. The third day we spent noodling the city. Then we traveled on to Marathon, Ontario; spent the night and noodled the city sights. Next morning we traveled back home, More

A Short Synopsis

September 2010 I spoke with some nice ladies about my interest in tenting around Lake Superior. I received much information and some printed material. Below is a short synopsis of what I have accomplished since the early ’50s. Started with my family camping the North Shore in the early ’50s; 2001 camped to Thunder Bay, Ontario, in a tent trailer; 2010, July, camped by myself in a tent and two More

By Motorcycle

My wife and I completed the Circle tour by motorcycle from west to east (clockwise) starting and ending in Superior, Wisconsin, in July 1973. We enjoyed all the sights along the way. We particularly enjoyed all of the U.P. of Michigan, the Washburn/Ashland/Bayfield, Wisconsin, areas and the Canadian side of the Lake. John & Sharon Garland, Crystal, Minnesota
