    There is really no serious crime I can think of.

    Be careful of slippery surfaces when hiking. A fall could prove fatal. Also, the water is extremely cold all of the time. (Wading might be fine, but swimming is suicidal) On a stormy day, watch yourself around the waves
    when walking.

    It is not uncommon to spot bears or moose
    in this general area. Remember, they are wild animals. Take your picture at a SAFE
    distance and move on.

  • Early August - Fisherman's Picnic

    by gm_localgirl Written Jun 5, 2004

    If you plan to travel to Grand Marais the last week of July or the first two weeks of August- RESERVE ROOMS EARLY. I'm talking- months early. The first full weekend of August is "Fisherman's Picnic". This is THE event in Grand Marais. Class reunions, races and contests, fishburgers, dances and music, sales and arts/crafts booths, baseball, basketball, and tennis tournaments. Town gets booked solid. This is a favorite time for people who used to live here to come back, alot of people make this their summer vacation.

    Many families reserve rooms for the next year when they come here. It *can* be impossible to find a room if you just happen through at this time. Its a great event, but it takes early reservations :)

    If you are the type of person that is use to having guard-rails around everything and signs pointing out danger, then beware! This is truly wilderness. There are: massive clifs, Not so massive Bears, Moose, etc. My point being, don't think that there will be someone coming by shortly if you get in trouble. Moose and bear are not as slow as you might think.
