Minnesota is quite known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes, the true number is actually nearer to 12,000. The state has the most named lakes among the lower 48 states with Michigan coming in 2nd place followed by Florida in 3rd. Lake Superior for instance is so big that it can literally hold all of the water from the other Great Lakes. If you are planning to get a vacation rental on Lake Superior you will be quite elated to know that there is an abundance of walleye, smelt, trout, salmon, herring, smallmouth bass and pike to name a few. Here is a guide to help you enjoy your vacation at Loon Lodge on Lake Superior.
Circle Tour of Lake Superior
Of the different vacations anyone can take in this area, a Circle Tour of Lake Superior may be the best. The area is quite appealing to a number of waterfall watchers, lighthouse fanatics and students of history. It is quite loved by hikers and kayakers and makes perfect sense to enjoy a honeymoon or that sought after family trip that you’ve always wanted to have. It is quite kid-friendly. Just look at the number of kids loving the many pebble beaches that dot the area. You can enjoy it by motorcar or motorcycle or even camp. The best though is to find a vacation rental on Lake Superior accommodation so you can have all the creature comforts of home. This place is definitely perfect for anyone that loves nature and the outdoors.
The 1,300-mile Circle Tour is no pushover. Careful planning is needed as you might need a new place to stay each night. It would be quite convenient to be able to stop whenever you feel like it. However, if it is during the popular summer season, you risk being turned away if you have not booked early on your vacation rental on Lake Superior.
Best Time To Go And Check Out Vacation Rental On Lake Superior
Anytime is a good time to visit Lake Superior but if you absolutely want the best time it would be in late May and June as these are the least crowded. The rates also are usually lower but weather can be a tad unpredictable and there are swarms of black flies during this time. From the middle of June, you will find that all attractions and festivals are in full swing. Schools in Canada don’t finish out until the end of June, so expect some light tourist activity until then.
It would be nice to know that the blueberry-picking season begins in late July. The best time to swim is in August and on the south shore. A lot of people like to visit the lake in September when the weather is excellent and there are no insects. In the fall, the colors can be quite spectacular with the peak coming at the last week of September until the first week of October. Be prepared however for some chilly and at times blustery weather if you prefer to come at this time.
I recommend getting Lake Superior’s annual Travel Guide, which also comes with a good map of the place. The guide is free of charge with a subscription and is easily available on newsstands, bookstores or in downtown Duluth at 310 E. Superior St. Too far to visit for a guide? Order by mail free but postage and handling will cost you $3.95
Review the guide’s map chart and determine how much time you intend to drive each day. Then check if there is an event near you, which you want to catch first, and just develop your itinerary around that. The Lake is quite popular during the summer so make sure that you plan early and book your vacation rental in Lake Superior if you intend on spending the night or several nights.
