This Hidden Beach Along Minnesota’s North Shore Is The Best Place To Find Agates

Minnesota is about as far from the ocean as you can get. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have our fair share of beaches! The state’s more than 10,000 lakes offer thousands of miles of shoreline, which are home to some truly outstanding beaches. While you aren’t likely to find seashells at Minnesota’s beaches, you can certainly find other treasures, including the state’s official gemstone: the Lake Superior agate. There are many places to hunt for these special rocks, including the beach we’d like to introduce today. Tucked away along the Lake Superior shoreline in Duluth, Brighton Beach might just be the best place to find agates.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
