Can’t wait to go back!

I’m lucky enough to live on the Keweenaw Peninsula, so started here and went clockwise. Tried to hit most of the renowned rock picking beaches and though the lake was rough most days, found a good bunch of agates at the roadside beaches on the MN north shore and near Grand Marais, MI. Most amazing to me was Split Rock Lighthouse (MN) and the restored keeper’s home, the views from More

12 Days of The Circle

We used the Lake Superior Travel Guide and The Ultimate Guide to the Region and we were very pleased, especially the mile-by-mile aspect.

We loved the friendliness of people all along our way, and some favorite spots were the Lakewalk area in Thunder Bay, the view of the Sleeping Giant, watching the ships, Mt.

September 2018 Circle Tour

We started September 7th in Duluth and circled counter clockwise. We had been to Bayfield and Ashland before, so we decided to skip them this time and head directly into Michigan. Highlights in Michigan: Cold Iron Brewery in Ironwood. Of the breweries we stopped at during our tour, these guys were the best. Also, we recommend eating at Don & GG’s, which offers both vegetarian and vegan options; hiking the More
