One of our favorite day trips from Bluefin Bay is to the quaint harbor village of Grand Marais. Take a gorgeous summer drive up North Shore Scenic Drive about 25 miles to experience the art, culture, dining, shopping, and the harbor itself. Stroll to the edge of the lighthouse for a closer look at the moored sailboats. Hike Artist's Point for a different perspective. Skip stones on the cobblestone beach or enjoy a Cappacinno' at an eco friendly cafe. Shop the amazing art galleries and studios (14+) that dot this seaside village. Or, take a class at the North House Folk School and learn a new northern craft.
Grand Marais is known for its festivals and events, such as Arts Festival, Dragon Boat Festival or Fisherman's Picnic.
