Favorite Spots Were in Thunder Bay

We completed the Lake Superior Circle Tour from July 11-15, 2016. Our favorite spots were the two days we spent in Thunder Bay touring Fort William, Amethyst Mine Panorama and Sleeping Giant Provincial Park. Being from Minnesota, we had already toured the North Shore between Duluth and Grand Portage several times, so it was great to see Lake Superior the rest of the way around!

Loved It All

Started the trip Sept. 10 and ended the trip Sept.19. Spent nine days driving around the lake. We drove a little over 1,600 miles with the side trips. Loved it all. It was like three different scenic areas. The first one was the Minnesota north shore. Been there several times in the past, but never been past Grand Marais before. The second area was past Thunder Bay. It was just a More

A Very Enjoyable Trip

My son, mother and I took the Lake Superior Circle Tour in August 2015. It was a very enjoyable trip. Our favorites were Duluth, Copper Harbor, Pictured Rocks, Ouimet Canyon, Sleeping Giant, and so many more places. Lots of waterfalls, and they were all so beautiful. My 19-year-old son did all of the planning using the Lake Superior Travel Guide and the Lake Superior, The Ultimate Guide to the Region. More

A Wonderful Trip!

We did the Lake Superior Circle Tour from July 3-12, 2015. What an awesome trip! It is so hard to pick favorites. Loved the view of Split Rock Lighthouse from afar. Watching climbers at Palisades Cliffs. Grand Marais was a cute little town (great meal at The Angry Trout). We saw a bear on the Gunflint Trail. High Falls and Kakabeka Falls were just the beginning of many beautiful falls. More

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
