With most festivals and state fairs canceled for this summer, it’s a perfect time to get out and see the country.
But don’t just hit up any old stretch of highway, take in one of the countries most scenic drives and escape the summer heat.
The North Shore Scenic Drive runs for a total of 154 miles between Duluth, MN, and the Canadian border, Highway 61 is a spectacular stretch of road skirting Lake Superior. Immortalized in song by Bob Dylan, Highway 61 earns its national designation as an All American Road.
The drive takes you through seven state parks, bisecting ancient rock formations with breathtaking views. You’ll see historic Split Rock Lighthouse, forests, waterfalls, and of course the world’s largest lake. Small shoreline towns offer restaurants serving local fish and produce as well as unique shops and art galleries.
