We drove the incredible North Shore Scenic Drive today. This is one of the top ten things to do in Duluth. It was awesome! We made several stops to watch people swimming, boating, hunting for agates and more.

We drove through many small communities, parks and tunnels. We shopped at unusual shops for everything from wild rice to cheese curds. It was a fun trip, I will let the pictures tell the rest of story.

North Shore Scenic Drive Info Paste Below:

Beginning at Canal Park in Duluth, Minnesota's North Shore Scenic Drive is a journey through an unspoiled wilderness that kisses the sweeping shoreline of the world's largest freshwater lake.

The breathtaking cliffs and beaches of Lake Superior's beautiful North Shore are bordered by the Sawtooth Mountains and thousands of acres of pine, aspen and birch trees. Rivers and streams make their rocky way to the lake, forging dazzling waterfalls along the way. Lighthouses recall the awesome power of the mighty lake, and dozens of trails allow visitors to experience the North Shore's natural beauty up close.

Friendly communities are home to cultural and historic museums and exhibits, as well as unique shopping, dining and lodging. You may wish to drive slowly and stop often, as the North Shore Scenic Drive reaches its destination at Grand Portage all too soon!
