I don’t know if this counts, but when I was 10 years old (1958) my dad got a new Oldsmobile and he and my mom, my aunt and uncle and a cousin drove around Lake Superior one summer. I have a few memories of the trip. Near the end I remember things were getting a little tense between my dad and my uncle (who had some anger issues and was More
It was so much fun and I enjoyed every minute of it. I got to experience and explore places that I have only read about in books. My favorite spots had to be Fort William in Thunder Bay and also getting to sea kayak for the first time in Wawa. I was so much fin and I definitely want to do it again sometime. I went with Northland College for More
We spent almost 4 weeks making this trip. Spent a lot of time reviewing the Lake Superior Travel Guide and making all reservations ahead of time. Also making notes of what things we wanted to see. We had good weather the entire time and the scenery was amazing. We have been to Duluth many times so we started and finished the trip there and went clockwise. We took several boat More
I traveled the lake this past July with a new friend. We did the trip in one week and camped every night. I really liked Thunder Bay. It was a beautiful city, with music, art, and good food and drinks. We stopped at many breweries along the way. One that was particularly unique was in Grand Marais, MN because you could sit on the roof and enjoy your beer while More
As something to do that we could spend some quality time together, my wife and I set out to see all the lighthouses around the lake. We have done the Lake Michigan tour and decided to give Lake Superior a try. Weather was perfect and just the start of colors of fall. Thomas Gscheidle, Wonder Lake IL
I didn’t think about Fall Colors when I planned this trip. Saw some color on the Keeweenau Peninsula, but that’s the only place. Enjoyed revisiting the South Shore and Sault Ste. Marie. The Canadian Bushpilot Heritage Center in the Sault Ste. Marie, Canada, is an awesome place for plane enthusiasts. The best views of the Big Lake were on the North Shore where I spend my summers.
We took our tour counterclockwise starting in Iron River. We took the Ale tour, making sure to (safely) stop at each brewery as we made our way around the lake. Weather was cold but the colors were vibrant! By the time we were in Canada bus tours filled with tourists were traveling along the coast to get a peek at the peak colors. The Ale tour was strong until we More
We did this trip for our 40th wedding anniversary. We had a great time in a small RV.
Loved the contrast of the two Grand Marais’. Dick & Penny Vokes, Harbor Springs, MI
We just finished our first Circle Tour, with overnight stops in Duluth, Grand Marais, Thunder Bay, Marathon, Wawa, Sault Ste. Marie, Marquette and Ashland. We enjoyed the fall colors, waterfalls, and nature. Perhaps our favorite day was spent in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, and the entire Upper Peninsula was amazing.
