North Shore Scenic Drive Once Again Makes Top 10 List
About a year ago the North Shore Scenic Drive made a top 10 scenic drive list. This time, it's part of the 10 "Great All- American Road Trips" on yahoo.com. See where it landed on the list after the jump.Our local drive comes in at #6. Here's what they had to say:
Stretching from Duluth to Grand Portage, the 154-mile North Shore Drive paves a scenic path through rugged Minnesotan wilderness, bordering boreal forests, the jagged Sawtooth Mountains, and a sweeping Lake Superior shoreline. The world's largest freshwater lake affords plenty of water-play activities and postcard-perfect panoramas, while the route provides easy access to eight state parks and the Superior National Forest, primed for hiking, wildlife viewing, and ogling plummeting waterfalls. For local culture, pull off in the artsy harbor town of Grand Marais, or the old fur-trading post in Grand Portage, the last town before the Canadian border.
At number 5 was the Florida Keys, and following the North Shore Scenic Drive was number 7, the Cayuga Lake Scenic Byway. Not bad company, eh? Check out the whole list at yahoo.com.
