Minnesota Visitor - North Shore in Autumn

We spent last week on the North Shore of Lake Superior. Our son and his children joined us. These included his adult son (our grandson) and his wife and three younger children. Because we were a large group we chose the side-by-side vacation homes at Larsmont Cottages.

This vacation resort is situated right on the shore of the great lake.

Larsmont Cottages has many amenities including a pool, spa, and game room. The kids stayed busy! As well, it is located just a few miles from Duluth and close to Two Harbors. Easy access to the Lake Superior Scenic Highway led us out to several drives to explore the area.

The Lake Superior North Shore from Two Harbors to Grand Marais is the most popular stretch of the North Shore. Many of the North Shore popular attractions are located along this part of the highway and, as well, many of Minnesota's most popular state parks.

Gooseberry Falls State Park is just up the road. It is easily the most popular state park in Minnesota and the place for some wonderful hiking and photos.

Tiny Knife River was a "must visit" to pick up some smoked fish at Russ Kendall's and for chocolates at the Candy Kitchen.

The leaves still had not reached their full glory last weekend, so we will be planning another North Shore excursion in a week or two. I hope you get a chance to visit the North Shore soon.
