From Boreal Community Media - December 29, 2018.  

In a recent on-line feature article written by Lauren Cahn, Reader's Digest has noted Grand Marais and Cook County as one of the 15 least crowded winter destinations in the United States.  It was featured alongside such other vacation destinations as Tucson AZ, Key West FL, and Taos NM.  

Here is the text highlighting Grand Marais and Cook County as a winter destination:

"You won’t be escaping the winter chill, but in Minnesota, you’ll learn to embrace it. More than 350 resorts throughout Minnesota are open in winter, and almost a third of them have on-site access to cross-country ski trails, snow-shoeing, and snowmobiling. At the same time, Minnesota resorts know how to bring the “cozy” and the “warmth” with fireplaces, saunas, whirlpools, and belly-busting dinners. Consider one of Lake Superior’s resorts, such as the historic Naniboujou Lodge, which actually specializes in deep-winter fun."

Editor's Note:  Naniboujo's Winter Weekend Get-Aways begin in February and run through mid-March.  More information can be found on their website by following this link.
