Summer is the time, and the Lake Superior North Shore and Grand Marais, Minnesota is the place for summer fun. The northern shoreline of Lake Superior, the myriad Minnesota lakes, the state parks and national forests provide sights you can enjoy from the comfort of your car, and even more to do for those more adventurous souls who wish to venture out on hiking trails or enjoy other summer outdoor activities like fishing, bike riding, canoeing, kayaking, bird watching and more.
In Grand Marais and Cook County, Minnesota you can enjoy Lake Superior – the world’s largest freshwater lake, visit Minnesota’s tallest mountain peak at Eagle Mountain, view the state’s highest waterfall at Grand Portage State Park, and enjoy Minnesota’s longest and most scenic biking trails at the Luntzen Mountains.
Experience the spectacular chain of state parks, waterfalls, and seemingly endless list of year-round outdoor activities that are located on Highway 61 on the North Shore. From Gooseberry State Park (69 miles southwest) to Grand Portage State Park (40 mile northeast), eight State Parks provide a wide array of summer fun. Grand Marais and the Superior Inn are a great place to stay for your outdoor summer adventure and easy access to these Highway 61 parks and all the other activities to be found north in Cook County, Minnesota.
