Grand Marais: The Best Midwestern Small Town

May 1, 2017

We are proud to announce that our very own Grand Marais has been names America’s “Best Midwestern Small Town” By USA Today readers!

Grand Marais was in competition with 19 other small towns including some semi-local ones such as Bayfield, Wisconsin. As proud north shore residents, and after our “America’s Coolest Little Town” win in 2015, we are not surprised about this win! There are many contributing factors that put Grand Marais on every’s favorite’s list, the copious amounts of live music, the quint small town feel, many events, the restaurants to die for, and of course the craft beer (Voyageur Brewing Company)! Not to mention the breathtaking views of Lake Superior and the Sawtooth Mountains. No matter your taste, Grand Marais has something for you!

The Minneapolis Star Tribune produced an amazing article on this victory.

Just a twenty-five minute drive from Bluefin Bay, Grand Marais makes a great day trip!
