“Gorgeous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Took the drive all the way up to Grand Portage and back, really a beautiful drive. Colors were slowly changing. Made lots of stops along the way including Gooseberry State Park, Split Rock Light House, Grand Marais, and Grand Portage State Park. Actually took us two full days to do everything we wanted to. Well worth it though. A definite must see while on the North Shore

“Wonderful for a day-trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

The scenic North Shore in Minnesota cannot be said in a bad tone, it is simply amazing to take a drive up the shore of Lake Superior (especially in the Fall!!) and see what there is to be seen. If you are feeling extra advantageous, drive to Gooseberry State Park and see the wonderful waterfalls.

“One of the top drives in the state.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Great views only bad part is finding a place to eat without having to wait forever. If you have the time take the scenic route from Duluth to Two Harbors instead of the 4 lane road. Much better.

“Just drive it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Beauty around each corner! Winter driving can be a bit scary, but driving the North Shore is always worth it. Visit the various state parks alnog this drive.The little towns along the way is fun to stop in and see what is there.
