I am planning to spend 3 nights with my husband in August in Grand Marais. We should be staying at a cabin on lake superior which is a walking distance to down town Grand Marais. But, we are going there without a car and we do not drive. So, I am planning to enjoy the lake view, Artists Point, dining in the nearby restaurants and so on. But I like to go swimming and I was told that I can swim in inland lakes since the temperature of lake Superior can be quite chilly. I found that Devil Track lake is a 10 minutes drive so maybe I can hire a taxi/shuttle to that point. Do you recommend swimming there? If yes, where should I be going since it is a large lake with resorts on it and I am staying in another place. Also do you know any other inland lake that is nearby and good for swimming?
I also want to know if you recommend that I go to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area BWCA using a shuttle for a day trip. I never did canoeing before but I heard the area there is very beautiful and I wish if i can go.
Thanks a lot.
