July has almost come and gone but don’t panic yet! We still have oodles of summer left to enjoy warm weather adventures on Minnesota’s North Shore. In case you need a few more reasons to plan one last blast of summertime fun…
Outdoor Adventures: Our August Activity Calendar is full of complimentary adventures and events for the whole family. Kayak Lake Superior, Inland kayak on Caribou Lake, canoe the Poplar River, explore the local trails with a guided hike or take a bike ride on the Gitchi-Gami Trail. You’ll also find Kids Activities, Yoga, Winery Tours & Shuttles, plus campfires with s’mores.
Stay cool with nature’s best air conditioning – Lake Superior! Has it been hot and humid where you live? The breeze blowing off the big lake keeps all of that away. Imagine sleeping with the windows open, listening to the waves and enjoying a cool breeze right off the lake. Aahhh! Looking for a little more heat? You’re in luck! Head inland 1+ miles for shorts and tank top weather. We really do have it all on the North Shore!
