Take a day trip to Grand Marais

July 27, 2010

Sailboats in waterOne 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 galleriesand studios (14+) that dot this seaside village.  Or, take a class at the North House Folk School and learn a new northern craft.
