Visit Grand Marais Minnesota For a Vacation That is Close to Nature
I've been going to Grand Marais, Minnesota since I can remember. I have many relatives living there so there were many reasons to visit including the beautiful scenery and activities that go along with it.
My two favorite things about Grand Marais are Lake Superior and the Superior National Forest. Minnesota is known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes, and many of them are near Grand Marais and are in the Superior National Forest, which is where the Boundary Waters Canoe Area is located.
If you like camping, hiking, fishing and canoeing, there is no better area in the United States. You can back country camp or camp at one of the many campgrounds just East of town, up the Gunflint Trail-a scenic road that travels 50 miles into the Superior National Forest.
In town there are a number of shops, galleries and restaurants to explore, including the Ben Franklin store that still has product and prices from the 1970's. This is also where you will find the shore of Lake Superior, not that you would miss it. Since I was a little kid I have explored and wandered the breakwall and rock ledges that form the harbor. And if you want to take in a beautiful sunrise, this is the place to do it, watching the sun set behind the Sawtooth Mountains.
If you're into ice fishing, snowmobiling or skiing this winter wonderland is an amazing place as well, but for me I try to stay away in the winter. It gets cold with lots of snow.
