The Day Trip Of A Lifetime You Can Only Take In Minnesota

When you’re planning a Minnesota day trip, where do you even start? To the south, small towns nestled in rolling hills and towering bluffs are perfect for exploring. North, the Boundary Waters are the ideal place to get away from it all. And in between, there are too many activities to list. So what do you choose? Here’s one idea: spend the day taking a lighthouse tour of the North Shore. The choppy waves of Lake Superior will relax you, and the lighthouses will offer the picturesque beauty you’re looking for.
