We flew in and out of Minneapolis, rented a car and started the tour in Duluth, MN. We arrived in Duluth on Sept. 19 and spent two nights there, drove clockwise and ended up completing the tour on Sept. 30. After our first two nights in Duluth, we spent one night each in Grand Marais, MN; Thunder Bay, ON; Terrace Bay, ON; Wawa, ON; Paradise, MI; Munising, MI; Silver Lake, MI; and two nights in Bayfield, WI. Treated well everywhere we went.
Special note that Point Park Marina in Duluth had especially good service and great amenities. Tahquamenon Suites in Paradise was one of the nicest suites. Sunset Motel in Munising, MI was a great location right on the waterfront. AmericInn Hotel in Silver City MI was a great waterfront view and great amenities and good service. Winfield Inn in Bayfield WI had the most beautiful gardens and gorgeous view of the Lake.
My favorite spots: Split Rock Lighthouse – most beautiful lighthouse. Great picture from the tram walkway. Miners Castle in Munising at Pictured Rocks. Tettegouche State Park at the river mouth. Pebble Beach, Marathon, most fascinating. Lake Superior Provincial Park for beautiful lake views.
