A very nice small town to visit. Lots of activities to do year round. Summer: Take a walk out to Artist Point and the light house, home to some of the oldest exposed rock on earth. Hike up one of the near-by rivers/State Parks, Cascade, Kadunce, Judge Magney/Brule River/Devil's Kettle, or Devil Track River, all within 15 miles of town. The Superior Hiking Trail
runs from Duluth to the Canadian Border, and it dips down into Grand Marais
. Grand Marais is one of the main take off points for the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, with a couple of outfitters in town, and many up the Gunflint Trail
you can come into town with no gear and find every thing you need here . There are also the Border Route Trail
and the Kekabic Trail
s which start just outside of Grand Marais. Check out the Grand Marais Art Colony http://www.grandmaraisartcolony.org/ Take a sailboat ride on the Schooner Hjørdis at North House Folk School http://www.northhouse.org. http://www.wintertracks.com/ Winter, Winter Tracks.
