Lake Superior Area Travel Tips

Getting to Lake Superior Vacation Rentals

Lake Superior forms part of the northern boundary with Canada. The southern shoreline lies in the states of Michigan and Wisconsin. The western shoreline is part of Minnesota. On the lake itself the major city is Duluth which is located on the far western tip of Lake Superior. If you are traveling from further afield and need to fly into the area, the nearest major airport is Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport. The Twin Cities are approximately 140 miles from Duluth and the drive up takes between two and three hours, depending on traffic and current road conditions. The Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport hosts regularly scheduled flights from most major cities in the United States and Canada. There are also frequent flight connections to regional and domestic airports. To get from the Twin Cities to the lake, most people choose to drive up. If flying in, you can hire a car from one of the many reputable car rental agencies located at the airport. Alternatively, you can also travel by rail up to Duluth and then along the lakeshore. This is one of the most scenic and enjoyable ways to travel to Lake Superior.

In the summer season, the population just about doubles if not more. Many families from the Twin Cities and surrounding areas travel to Lake Superior to spend their summer vacation there. It is an ideal family vacation destination. Many of the vacation homes are located on the lakeshore which means that you have easy access to the water to enjoy a variety of activities. Many homes have private jetties where you can moor your boat for the duration of your vacation. Large lawns and properties mean that you can enjoy games and different family fun activities without having to drive anywhere. Fish from right in front of your vacation home and enjoy outdoor barbecues with family and friends.

Seasons to Visit Lake Superior Cabins

Lake Superior is primarily a summer vacation destination. Many visitors move to the lakeshore for extended periods of time during the summer months. The season runs from early May through September. The busiest time of year is during June and July. If you are planning to travel during peak season, it is recommended that you make your holiday reservations well in advance as it gets booked up quickly. Summertime is also the ideal time for exploring the lakeshore. Particularly in Minnesota, there are numerous National Parks which have great hiking trails. Follow the lakeshore and explore waterfalls and forest areas. This is also a great time of year to enjoy mountain biking or horseback riding. Even though there are fewer visitors during the winter months, Lake Superior is a great place to visit if you want to hole up and enjoy the scenery. Most homes have large fireplaces and you can spend your days in front of the fire with a good book or good company.

Favorite Activities at Lake Superior

Lake Superior is an ideal fishing destination. You can enjoy your favorite sport from the lakeshore or charter a boat to head out to deeper waters. Even in the icy winter months, the weather doesn't stop the fishing enthusiasts. When the lake freezes over, they pull their ice fishing houses out onto the ice and continue to enjoy their favorite sport. Boating and other water sports are popular summertime activities.
