In Grand Marais every nook and cranny has personality—authenticity. You’ll enjoy an amazing arts culture, unmatched natural beauty, colorful restaurants, a wide range of accommodations, unique and quaint shops, and, of course, a body of water that demands your attention.
It gets better. One minute you’re in this timeless harbor village enjoying a cappuccino, the next you’re at the doorstep of millions of acres of national wilderness just waiting to be explored.
It’s safe to say, it’s like nowhere else on the planet. Except for, maybe, somewhere in New England. But they have funny accents
You’re invited to do as much or as little as you want. Grand Marais is ideally situated between the shores of Lake Superior and the Sawtooth Mountain Range, with millions of acres of inland lakes and forests close at hand. If you’re after some solitude, you’ve got it, dramatically surrounded by unmatched natural beauty. If you want outdoor adventure, you have rich and plentiful options. Hiking, biking, fishing, canoeing and kayaking all take you into the most spectacular scenery in the Midwest. Come in winter for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or snowmobiling, and you’ll pass through winter moose yards, snow-tipped forests, rolling hills and valleys. Every season has its appeal, but always, you have the inspiration of Lake Superior, the majesty of Superior National Forest and the serenity of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
You can celebrate the five senses in other ways, too. Artists and craftspeople of all sorts make Grand Marais their home. Their sense of originality explains the quirky passion for a slice of color, subtle details, the wisp of humor that you will discover indoors and out. Take in a play or concert, or enjoy some live music in a local pub. Visit our galleries and specialty shops. You’ll discover that they are visual gifts in and of themselves. Restaurants and cafés, always inviting and relaxed, please all palates with menus reflecting North Shore specialties.
Discover the inspiration and reward that comes from working with your hands to make something truly special. Only in Grand Marais will you find both the North House Folk School and the Grand Marais Art Colony, offering an amazing array of courses. Classes are intergenerational, non-competitive, creative, and designed for all skill levels. Reacquaint yourself with the wonderful satisfaction of making something meaningful with your heart and hands.
