Amazing Views of the Big Lake!

I left work early on a Thursday afternoon in Marquette and drove west to Duluth. The focus of my trip was Lake Superior’s North Shore, so the goal that first day was just to get to Duluth. On Friday, I did a little sightseeing in Duluth, including a trip to the Thompson Hill welcome center. The views from there are great, so don’t forget a stop there. The remainder of More

Best trip ever!

Completed the circle tour as a family of 5 in our RV! Favorites were the many amazing waterfalls! In Duluth there were so many things to do as a family. We loved seeing the aerial lift bridge. Split Rock Light House, the many beaches and amazing views. The whole trip is a beautiful way to make memories and teach your children about the many wonders of Lake Superior, and its More

Our Amazing Circle Tour

The lighthouses and waterfalls were spectacular. Amnicon Falls, Gooseberry Falls, Tahquamemon Falls were great. The Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point on a rainy, windy day reminded us just how stormy Lake Superior can be. We took the sunset cruise at Pictured Rocks and were on the cruise ship when a family of four were rescued from the rocky coastline. Favorite lighthouse- Split Rock Lighthouse Ruby & Bill Dow, Mauston, WI

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

Wow! What a trip!

We started in Sault Ste. Marie and went around the lake that way. Next time we will go the other way I think. So much to see and do! Check out the Split Rock Lighthouse and all the other lighthouses for sure. If you want to go to Isle Royale State Park, you need to book the ferry very early in the season. Lots of cool visitor centers and also More

Lake Superior Circle Tour – Bucket List, check!

We traveled clockwise around the Big Lake; starting in Ironwood, MI at Little Girls Point. The lake water here was extremely dark red mud stained due to recent heavy rains and there was no swimming because of e-coli concerns. Our first night was spent in Bayfield, WI which was beautiful as always. We passed through Duluth/Superior without stopping if an effort to experience Gooseberry Falls and Split Rock Lighthouse (time More

Circle Tour by motorcycle.

One of the best rides we’ve ever taken with beautiful scenery around every bend. Started in Sault Ste. Marie and did the tour counter-clockwise with overnight stays in Wawa, Schreiber, Thunder Bay, Duluth, Ironwood, and Baraga. Highlights were the many waterfalls, Ouimet Canyon, Split Rock Lighthouse, and Copper Harbor. Highly recommend this tour. Dave & Sue Wurl, Rockford MI
