Duluth is one of our favorite romantic travel destinations in Minnesota...Duluth, and the North Shore of Lake Superior, are among Minnesota's most romantic vacation destinations. The main attraction all along the Lake Superior North Shore is the lake...Minnesota's "inland sea." Stroll hand in hand along the beach, climb out onto the still-warm rocks in the evening to watch the stars come out, build a bonfire as the night chills and cuddle together under a blanket to look for shooting stars. There is no end of romantic and fun things to do.

Choose one romantic travel destination, like Duluth, or travel together along scenic Highway 61 all the way to the Canadian border.

Pitch a tent in one of Minnesota's state parks for primitive romantic seclusion or pamper yourselves at a luxury resort hotel.

All along the shore, from Duluth to the Canadian border, you will delight in exploring romantic travel destinations on Lake Superior including:
