Plan A Trip To Grand Marais, One Of Minnesota's Most Charming Lake Towns
When it comes to the ultimate lake town experience in Minnesota, it’s hard to beat Grand Marais. Located at the tip of northern Minnesota on one of the Great Lakes — Lake Superior — Grand Marais is an utterly charming, gorgeous town filled with unique shops, good eats, scenic lake views, and thrilling outdoor adventures that’s truly among the best small towns in the U.S.
Stunning regardless of the season (it’s a popular winter spot thanks to the skiing options in the Sawtooth Mountains and popular in the summer, too, thanks to that lake), the small town also has a thriving local art community, so you can soak up some culture and see one-of-a-kind artwork on your trip.
Minnesota is famous for its lakes and its lake towns, but it’s hard to imagine one that can rival the sheer charm of Grand Marais. With its artsy vibes, delicious restaurants and bars, the lake views, and the nearby mountains, the town offers something for absolutely everybody.
