North Shore Drive

Stretching from Duluth to Grand Portage, the 154-mile North Shore Drive paves a scenic path through rugged Minnesotan wilderness, bordering boreal forests, the jagged Sawtooth Mountains, and a sweeping Lake Superior shoreline. The world's largest freshwater lake affords plenty of water-play activities and postcard-perfect panoramas, while the route provides easy access to eight state parks and the Superior National Forest, primed for hiking, wildlife viewing, and ogling plummeting waterfalls. For local culture, pull off in the artsy harbor town of Grand Marais, or the old fur-trading post in Grand Portage, the last town before the Canadian border.
