The miles of beaches across Lake Superior’s coastline offer beauty and relaxation that is unmatched in the Midwest.  Some of these beaches can be visited by car, and others will require a hike. One thing is for sure, though, these sandy strips of coast have something for everyone to enjoy and are worth the visit.

Kayaking is a fun activity in and of itself, but when you’re doing it at Pictured Rocks, an extra element of beauty is added.  Guided tours are available, which will introduce you to the best viewpoints on the lake.  



Adventuring is right around the corner with hundreds of miles of trails available on the National Lakeshore.  There’s a wide variety of hiking trails ready for short or long hikes, including trips that could take multiple days.   Check with the Visitor’s Center for current trail conditions, and also be aware that bicycles are prohibited on the trails. Pets, on the other hand, are permitted but require a leash no longer than 6 feet.
