Nice place to camp and see the sites. Pretty comparable to Northern MI, I wasn’t blown away but I wasn’t disappointed.

It's a beautiful drive and there are lots of interesting places to stop along the way. I was there in late September when the leaves were changing to fall colors.

A drive along the North Shore when the leaves are in full autumn color is a trip that should be on everyone's bucket list. Scenic, great lodging, and a good selection of quality dining places all the way from Duluth to Grand Portage. Just be...More
