Trip Advisor: Grand Marais Is One Of 20 Best Vacation Ideas In Small Town USA

Aug 10, 2017 03:06PM, Published by Editor, Categories: News



The travel website is highlighting Small Town USA vacation retreats.  From their blog:

"As you soak up the last few rays of sun this season—and sneak in one last getaway!—we’re spotlighting the best end-of-summer vacation ideas for a small-town escape. No matter what part of the country you call home, there’s a postcard-worthy destination here with your name on it. 

From old-fashioned Main Street shops to nostalgic summer attractions (picture berry patches, swimming holes, and mountain trails), these small towns capture the essence of summer. Whether you decide to close out the season with s’mores around the fire pit or a family beach day, TripAdvisor Rentals makes it easy to book an affordable trip and send off the summer with a bang."

And specifically about Grand Marais, TripAdvisor writes.

GRAND MARAIS, MINNESOTA

"A retreat tailor-made for artists and adventure seekers alike, Grand Marais is a small harbor town between Lake Superior and the Sawtooth Mountains. Whether you’re planning a romantic getaway or an epic hiking trip, this one-of-a-kind spot belongs on your list of summer vacation ideas. Explore Canadian Quetico Provincial Park or take a class at North House Folk School, a unique non-profit that draws creative minds from all over the country. Picturesque waterfalls, dozens of trailheads, and some of the best fishing lakes in the state are located nearby."
