Grand Marais, Minnesota, the jumping-off point for the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, the arts colony, and beautiful Lake Superior resort town, is the newest place to pick up a copy of Ride Lake Superior and its sister book, Ride Minnesota. Lake Superior Trading Post has just ordered copies.
If you’ve never been to Grand Marais, it, like a motorcycle ride around the Lake, should be on your bucket list. Perched right alongside Lake Superior, it offers spectacular scenery, great rides along the shore (and up the Gunflint Trail), shopping, great food and fun bars to kick back in after a day in the saddle. There’s a fudge shop for chocolate lovers, and a donut shop that’s to die for. There are eight Minnesota State Parks along Hwy. 61. Pick up a motorcycle pass (only $20 and it lasts for a whole year) and visit Gooseberry Falls, Split Rock Lighthouse, Tettegouche, Crosby-Manitou, Temperance River, Cascade River, Judge Magney or Grand Portage. You’ll find great hiking and camping. It’s just five hours north of the Twin Cities.
With the promise of an early spring, a trip to Grand Marais is not that not that far away!
