Visit Two Harbors Minnesota

Visit Two Harbors Minnesota and enjoy Minnesota tourist attractions on the North Shore just a few miles outside of Duluth.

This is  one of several delightful small towns you will find on the North Shore of Lake Superior as you travel along Highway 61.

This town of about 3,600 people is the largest community on the North Shore once you leave Duluth.

Once you arrive in Two Harbors, you have a number of options. If it is close to lunch time, we head straight to the Vanilla Bean Cafe and Bakery.

Be on the lookout for the tiny town of  Knife River.  We can't pass up a stop at Russ Kendall's Smokehouse there. We always buy a chunk of smoked salmon to take with us to our cabin.

If you have a sweet tooth, stop at the Great Lakes Candy Kitchen and fill a bag with your favorite treats. If you are staying nearby, plan one dinner at Emily's...a tradition in the area.

Larsmont Cottages is a favorite place to stay when we go to the North Shore with children and grandchildren. We stay in a 3-bedroom cottage and enjoy all the amenities offered by this beautiful complex. Especially memorable are late night bonfires on the shore watching the stars.

Dodge’s Log Lodges has been a favorite getaway for years when it's just the two of us. You can't get closer to the Lake Superior shore than this!

When we visit Two Harbors, I often stop by to see the Edna G. My 94 year old mother's name is Edna Gertrude, so we feel a family connection! The Edna G is a tugboat which worked the Great Lakes and is now preserved as a museum ship. Edna G was built by the Cleveland Shipbuilding Company in 1896.
