    Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center walk

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center has a lot going for it. We especially enjoyed the boardwalk trail through an example of the northern forest. The trail also passes through a section of wetland in which flowers and grasses are plentiful. Afterwards, we sat on the back porch and had a sack lunch while rocking in wooden rocking chairs. Photographers: this is a nice area for pictures. My zoom lens worked well to cover the range of pictures of interest. Tripod was not used. A macro lens for the flowers would have been nice to have.

    Apostle Islands National Lakeshore

    by Basaic Written Jul 27, 2012

    Favorite thing: The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore consists of 21 of the 22 Apostle Islands along with 12 miles of shore along the mainland of Wisconsin. It also includes a lot of water in the form of Lake Superior. There is a lot of natural beauty here. To enjoy it beat you will need to take a boat tour or bring your own but the park is worth a visit even if you stay "landlocked".
