North Shore Scenic Drive

An “All-American Road” along Minnesota’s North Shore of Lake Superior between Duluth at the western tip of the Great Lakes and Grand Portage at the Canadian border.

In a league of its own, the 154-mile North Shore Scenic Drive is Minnesota’s only designated “All-American Road”. The route parallels the inland coast of the world’s largest freshwater lake, bisecting ancient rock formations and thousands of acres of forests rising above the shore. With quaint coastal communities and destination parks along the way, driving the route provides breathtaking views and opportunities to stop and explore the lake shore, tumbling waterfalls, trails, historic sites, attractions, parks, events, shopping, lodging, dining and local culture. Simply put, there’s no place like it in the world.
