America's Most Iconic Drives: Highway 61 along Lake Superior, MNExplore Minnesota Tourism Photo

Highway 61 along Lake Superior, MN

Running north and east from Duluth, this breathtaking highway clings to the rugged shores of Lake Superior, giving uncluttered views of granite cliffs, dense North Woods forests, and photogenic Great Lakes lighthouses.

Where to Stop: Flanked by flower gardens, with the waters of Lake Superior lapping at the back door, the New Scenic Café outside Duluth (218-525-6274) is famous for its locally sourced seasonal food and fresh berry pies.

From Travel & Leisure… 

I’m not so sure about the New Scenic Cafe — but, I can tell you all about Highway 61 along the north shore…  in the rain, snow, sleet, blowing sneet and whatever — it’s always beautiful along the big lake.

Some of my very favorite photographs and memories are from that road — I have to say that it’s my favorite…
