Welcome to Northern Minnesota


The area is an outdoor playground, from the fabled Boundary Waters wilderness to the red-cliffed Lake Superior shore to watery Voyageurs National Park. You'll find far fewer people than pine trees populating this rugged expanse. Duluth and Grand Marais are hipper-than-you-think towns to post up in if you need a bit of 'urban' life.
