Adult family vacation

by Rod
(Nebraska)

We are considering a vacation to Minnesota. There are three families and 6-8 kids all 19 and over. We will be bringing a boat (18.5' Crestliner) but would also like things off the lake to do. With so many places to look it becomes somewhat daunting to figure out where a good spot would be. We tend to be active folks and all enjoy a sense of adventure.

Any advice?

Hello to you and your family!

Thank you for contacting us. Here is just one scenario for you and yours.

Consider the North Shore of Lake Superior as your primary destination. We recently stayed at Larsmont Cottages with a large family group and loved it. You will find a link to information about them here:

Family Vacation Resorts

Just a short distance from Larsmont Cottages is the Knife River Marina. They have guest docking for your boat. Please contact them directly for details:

Knife River Marina

Most any adventure you desire from rock climbing, to hiking/biking/canoeing/kayaking, etc. can be arranged somewhere along this area.

Two links on my website will help you will state park visits and what to see and do all along the shore:

Lake Superior: Two Harbor to Grand Marais

If you choose to adventure all the way to the Canadian border (not all that far) don't miss the easy climb to the High Falls (Pigeon Falls) and the stunning views there.

Lake Superior: Grand Marais to Grand Portage

Thank you again for your interest in the Visit Minnesota website. Feel free to contact me again.
