Travel Tips for Grand Marais

The Beaver House

by zrim

For the life of me, I couldn't tell you what goes on inside this place. To tell the truth I was too scared to venture inside. But I was brave enough to snap a photo of the only building that I have ever seen that has a giant fish puncturing its roof and wall. The type of fish you ask: you got me, I haven't a clue.

Grimmace and bear it

by zrim

That's not a smile on Becky's face. It is a grimmace that was frozen in place. We rushed Becky back to our rooms and put her in the sauna. It was at least half an hour before she was able to thaw out and regain control of her facial muscles.

Skipping Stones

by Toughluck

A tradition in town has always been for young families to head down to the waterfront on a warm summer evening and skip stones. Often it was combined with a stop at Jackson's Dairy Queen for a cone or dinner. Then down to the beach. Here, along Minnesota's north shore, beaches don't have sand, they have rocks. Acres of rocks. So as the sun slowly sets behind the Sawtooth Mountains (behind you), the kids while away the time seeing who can get the most skips, who can skip the furthest into the harbor, how many times, a rock nearly wings poor dad on the back of the head! It's a great time for everyone.

Day Trip to Isle Royale National Park

by Toughluck

Surrounded by Lake Superior, Isle Royale is a hard place to get too. The easist path is from Minnesota. The boat leaves early in the morning, about 8:00 am and returns that same evening about 6:00 pm. You get 3 hours on the island, a close look at Rock of Ages Lighthouse standing alone in the lake and if the water is quiet, you'll see the wreck of the America, 50 feet below the waters.

The Local Arts Guild

by zrim

I don't know quite what I should say about this tip, except that you should not believe the propaganda. Grand Marais is not a town where you can go about wearing shorts without incurring serious frost-bite. Sure the folks are friendly, sure the bears are friendly, sure the seagulls are friendly, but don't wear shorts! If your buddy jumped in the lake, would you? Just the same, if the bear on the arts guild wall wears shorts, don't you go thinking it's a good idea.
