Welcome to the North Shore

This is an amazing place to live and to visit. We hope this website helps you plan, explore and appreciate your visit to this section of Lake Superior coastline we call the North Shore. Follow the route of the North Shore Scenic Drive, an All-American Road, from Canal Park in Duluth, along the shore, through the burgs and woodlands, to the international border at Grand Portage with a taste of what to expect in Canada.

It’s SPRING on the North Shore!

Snow melt and spring rains have engorged the rivers and Waterfalls are magnificent! So is hiking right now. No bugs, great views as the leaves pop, and perhaps a little mud.

Eagles are returning as our ducks, geese, robins and even a few warblers have made it back. The does are wide with pregnancy, we are starting to have black bear sightings, and the wolves are retreating into the woods.

The seasonal shops and restaurants are opening and the calendar of events is starting to fill. It’s still quiet time, though. And we are headed inland to catch some walleye for dinner, appreciate the spring wildflowers and keep an eye out for moose calves.

I’ll keep in touch,

– Nina
