    Take the car ferry early in the day over to Madeline Island from the Bayfield Marina.

  • 2. Big Bay Beach and Grotto on Madeline Island

    The Grotto that leads to Lake Superior is just before the walkway to Big Bay Beach.
    This Beach is the perfect place to spend your day relaxing in the sun and walking along the sandy shoreline of Lake Superior... it's a beautiful spot!

  • 3. Lakeshore Trail and Meyers Beach- on Mainland.

    The Lakeshore Trail begins at the Meyers Beach parking lot. The start of the trail is along the woods, there is also a sign that shows a map of the trail. The Lakeshore Trail leads you to the awesome sandstone formations and seacaves carved by Lake Superior....the sights are worth the hike!!!
    Meyers Beach is also a good place to cool off after your hike!

  • 4. Island Princess Apostle Island Tour

    This narrarated 3 1/2 hour tour of the 22 Apostle Islands fills up FAST so make your reservations in advance! The sandstone formations on Devil's Island are worth the trip!

  • 5. Iron Bridge in Bayfield

    Walk up the hill to access the iron bridge, the surrounding views are great from here! There are nature trails below the iron bridge if you are interested...we didn't walk to far on them because it was getting dark so I'm not sure where they lead to.

  • 6. Bayfield Town Park

    This is the perfect place to enjoy an icecream cone and watch the sunset every night! It is on Lake Superior and has a playground, benches, grills, dock, and a large willow tree. It is located on the edge of town, by the coast guard building... if you cannot find it ask one of the locals!
