If you are looking to escape from the heat, you ought to consider a trip up to the World’s Largest fresh water lake, Lake Superior. You can do the entire Lake Superior Circle Tour or just a portion of it like the Minnesota North Shore or traveling along the Wisconsin South Shore (see our article on Wisconsin events this summer). For US citizens, this would be a very good year to take the Ontario leg of the Superior Circle Drive as there is a favorable exchange rate, making Canadian purchases a good bargain.
One the more popular destinations on Lake Superior is the quaint village of Bayfield. Filled with interesting shops, boutiques, pubs, and a beautiful harbor, Bayfield is also known as the gateway to the Apostle Islands National Park and Madeline Island. We did an article on one of the Apostle Islands – Raspberry Island & its Lighthouse.
Another good summertime scenic drive is the Upper Mississippi Great River Road. We’ve got several profiles of interesting places and scenic vistas on both sides of the Mississippi from the Illinois Quad Cities north as far as Red Wing, Minnesota.
