Highway 61/The North Shore

If you haven't been on this amazing drive along Highway 61, you're missing out. Also, make sure to get your camera ready, as you'll be snapping plenty of photos.

Here's what Travel & Leisure had to say about the North Shore Drive:

In Duluth, a walking path along the lake's edge shows off the city highlights, including a rose garden and an aerial bridge. Nearby, you can get a look at ocean tankers anchored in the last inland port of the St. Lawrence Seaway as they wait to load iron or grain from America's heartland before sending it out to the world. From Duluth, drive toward Two Harbors, only about 30 minutes away, and admire the lake's shining waters stretching out to the right, birch and northwood maples climbing high on the left. At your destination, you'll find the Split Rock Lighthouse, now a museum, overlooking Lake Superior's rugged coast.
