The North Shore has many fine resturants. My favorite is the Lemon Wolf in Beaver Bay.
Stop in and look at their Handcrafted Creature Forest,
A forest full of little creatures, puppets, and gifts.
You will be pleasently suprised at the excellent homecooked meals. Oh, and Susan makes pies that are out of this world.
Handcrafted meals by Rick, who is a super cook!
Nice Music! Relaxing.................................
Neat little stuffed animals and gifts.
Cookies that look like bear paws. Really, they even have claws. I found out it was susan's idea. Good one!
I could go on and on but I will leave the experience to you!
Favorite Dish: I guess I am a little old fashioned. I really like their hamburger. It is just SUPER!!
I have had their Grilled Chicken Sandwich and loved it.
Their Pecan Chicken Dinner must get their highest rating. You try it and I guarantee you'll be back!
Fish Out Of Water has unique gifts in many different categories. They sell furniture. jewelry, clothing, food, garden products, as well as great household items. Many items that they sell were recently featured on the Today Show as examples of Woodland Chic. There are two different buildings and the staff makes shopping fun. I would highly recommend stopping at Fish Out Of Water if you are traveling along the North Shore of Lake Superior.

Favorite thing: Old industrial structures are often neglected and left to decay. There's something melancholic about them. There's an entire category of art photography that's dedicated to industrial ruins. (If you're interested, check out the work of Bernard and Hilder Becher.)
Favorite thing: I'm not really sure how this thing works - or even if it's still in use. I know that a lot of ore from the Mesabi Range gets shipped through Duluth.
Favorite thing: As you drive through Silver Bay on SR 61, you can't help but be impressed at the imposing ore loading facility lakeside. It's not open to the public, but there are several places where there are parking "turn-outs" and where it's possible to catch interesting glimpses of the superstructure through the chain-link fence. This kind of procedure for the shipping of taconite pellets is completely unlike the ore docks I'm familiar with from Ashland WI and my home town of Marquette MI.
