20 Great Lakes Getaways

By: Midwest Living | June 27, 2019


As the gateway to Minnesota's North Shore vacationland, Duluth lures visitors who come for outdoor adventure, the glamour of 1900s-era lumber-boom mansions and breathtaking views of Lake Superior.

Five Fun Stops

1 Duluth's 135-foot-tall Aerial Lift Bridge (pictured) rises more than 20 times each day for sailboats and skyscraper-length ships traveling between Lake Superior and Duluth Harbor.

2 Check out the freshwater critters (gigantic sturgeon, otters, trout) at the two-story Great Lakes

3 Historical elegance melds with modern-day luxuries at the A.G. Thomson House Historic Bed and Breakfast, a 1909 Dutch Colonial.

4 At Vikre Distillery, Lake Superior water goes into craft products like aquavit, a Scandinavian liquor spiced with cardamom and caraway.

5 The beautiful Park Point Beach lies on a sandy swath of land separating Lake Superior from the Duluth harbor. Watch the ore boats come and go or brave the lake's temps and frolic in the water.
