One of the Most Beautiful Places We’ve Ever Seen

We are very happy to inform you that we have completed the total Circle Tour this July/August. The trip began from our home in Bayfield, Wisconsin, on July 28, 2014 and ended there on Aug. 11, 2014. During the 14 days, we drove 1,673 miles and saw one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever seen in all of our world travels. What made it so special was that not More

The Magic of a Colorful Autumn Circle Drive

On October 23, 2013, my family completed the Circle Tour of Lake Superior. We had so many favorite spots and experiences, but the best include seeing the many waterfalls along the tour (I had no idea there would be so many!), eating at Tycoon’s in Duluth (great Whitefish), Dunc Lake near White River, Ontario, provided a great sunset while we stayed at Gloria’s Motel (which had a beautiful view of More

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

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

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

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

Visiting Winnie-the-Pooh

My daughter and I drove the Circle Tour April 4-8, 2013. Our object was to visit Winnie-the-Pooh in White River, Ontario. Even though the museum wasn’t open until May, Debby opened the museum for us. We enjoyed our visit with her and talking about Winnie. And, of course, we have numerous pictures of the Winnie statue with ourselves and also with one of the stuffed Winnies I had made and More

Never-Ending Ooohs and Aaahs

My sister, Alice Hudson (78), and I (79) left Wash­­burn, Wisconsin, on Tuesday September 18 going west around Lake Superior. We had both done portions of the tour as children, as well as the entire tour with our husbands (they were brothers!), but that was YEARS ago. So it was with a great deal of amazement we discovered the many improvements all along the way. The roads are fabulous, as More

A Wonderful Trip

My husband, Clark, and I left on Monday, September 17 heading up the North Shore for what turned out to be a 9-day trip around the entire lake. Because we live in Duluth (and have seen the North Shore all our lives), we headed for Sleeping Giant Campground for our first night. Funny thing happened … we ran into our neighbors! Didn’t know they were making the trip and vice More
