“Lake Superior North Shore Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

It is absolutely breathtaking as you drive up along the shore. The sparking lake with gentle waves on one side, and the multicolored tree's of red, orange, yellow, brown, and green on the other side. Be sure to stop at Gooseberry Falls and Split Rock Light House. One of our favorites is the Temperance River trail with the rapidly flowing river that has cut deep potholes along the riverbed. Fall is a wonderful time to visit the North Shore, but make sure you have reservations as hotels fill up quickly in the fall.
The Skyline drive in the hills above the city of Duluth, with scenic views of the lake, is quite beautiful also.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Breathtaking. The farther you drive north, the more amazing it gets. Duluth on it's own is a cool place to visit but then when you add the rest of the shoreline in........wow!

“Great in the fall!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Everywhere you look there is a wonderful view on the north shore. Gooseberry falls and split rock light house are must stops. If at all possible do the trip with your spouse on a romantic get away in a proper sports car.

“Beautiful scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

I love this drive out of Duluth. It just takes your breath away it is so beautiful. I was a little disappointed that the colors just weren't there this year. I'll just have to catch it another year.
