      About North Shore Area
      Captivating Landscapes in Northeastern Minnesota

      Minnesota's northeastern tip, known as the North Shore Area, lies above Lake Superior's great waters. Its rich forests, rugged terrain, cascading waterfalls, and gorges mesmerize first-time visitors and residents all the same.

      Some waterfront homes are perched high above Lake Superior, while others are hidden so deep in the forest they are hardly visible to passers-by.

      Duluth and Nearby Cities

      Duluth is the area's largest city, located on the western tip of Lake Superior. It offers a wide variety of conveniences, including the Duluth International Airport and St. Luke's Hospital.

      Duluth's downtown Lakewalk is the perfect way to explore the city and the lake. The city is always busy with an event; some of its most popular include Taste of Duluth, City on the Hill Music Fest, City of Duluth 4th Fest, Oktoberfestival, and City of Lights.

      Along Highway 6, towns like Two Harbors, Silver Bay, and Grand Marais offer shopping, dining, and lodging establishments. There are also state parks, golf courses, resorts, and more that can be found along the road.

      Plenty of Waters to Explore

      People of all kinds come to experience the peaceful aura of the North Shore Area; some come for a stress-free weekend while others make it their new way of life.

      Lake Superior is the largest freshwater lake in the world, covering 20,288,000 acres. On its wave-crashing shores, you will feel that you are overlooking an ocean rather than a lake.

      Caribou Lake is known to have some of the state's cleanest waters. The White Sky Trailhead and Caribou Trailhead land at its western shore.

      Other lakes in the area include Devil Track Lake, Loon Lake, Birch Lake, McFarland Lake, and Greenwood Lake.

      Majestic Forests
