Spring has sprung which means it’s the perfect time get out of the house and go for a scenic drive along the North Shore! Superior Shores Resort is destined to be your North Shore lodging location for your springtime vacation. While staying with us, hop in your car and go for a drive to experience the natural beauty of Two Harbors, MN and the surrounding Northland. Check out the Scenic Byway Routes and get to know more about the North Shore.
As you wind your way along the shore you’ll get to see spectacular views of Lake Superior. She is quite mighty and superior if you ask us! Whether it’s a gorgeous day with clear waters or a windy one, you’ll know you’re at Lake Superior when the horizon line shows no land. Along the wonderful lakeside, you’ll find quaint towns and small, local shops during your drive. Below we’ve added a few places to stop and see while embarking on your own spring adventure.
Places to Check Out
As you venture down the North Shore Scenic Drive (MN 61) Make sure to stop at Tom’s Logging Camp & Old Northwest Co. Trading Post. Step into the past and experience what an old logging camp was like when you tour the museum and gift shop. If you get hungry, go across the street for a homemade sandwich and an ice cream cone.
While driving along the Scenic Highway, stop at Great Lakes Candy Kitchen for a yummy treat. With over a 100 years of candy-making, this kitchen is sure to please any sweet tooth! Their handmade goodies include chocolates, caramel apples, fudge, and so much more. We recommend stopping here to indulge your senses in mouth-watering delicacies.
Another traditional place we recommend is Russ Kendall’s Smoke House. Also located along Scenic Drive, you won’t go wrong picking out their expertly cured fish and jerky. A fan favorite is the Brown Sugar Trout or Salmon; your taste buds will enjoy the seasoning and smokey flavor that Russ Kendall’s has concocted.
No matter your drive or where you choose to stop along the way, Superior Shores will always be your home away from home on the North Shore. We look forward to hearing about your day trips and adventures this spring season! Book your stay with us today and start planning your vacation at our North Shore lodging. Experience the beauty that makes up the Northland along Lake Superior and enjoy cozy nights with bonfires and s’mores with us!
