Two Harbors, Minnesota: Quiet Town Along Lake Superior
Two Harbors sits on the shores of the largest freshwater lake in the world—Lake Superior. It’s the top draw for most visitors; in nearby Duluth, the Lake Superior Maritime Visitor Center greets over 400,000 out-of-towners annually. Gooseberry Falls State Park occupies a prime spot along the water. It’s named after its most beautiful feature: three waterfalls created by the Gooseberry River’s course toward the lake through a rocky gorge. The park has 20 miles of hiking trails and 15 miles of paved bike paths, many of which feature views of the falls.
Just 25 miles to the south sits Duluth, named the “best outdoors town” in America by Outside magazine in 2014. Along the edge of the water, Duluth’s Lakewalk attracts joggers, bicyclists, and skaters, and provides access to the city’s waterfront pubs, ice cream parlors, and shops. For a night on the town, head to Canal Park, a warehouse district where the buildings have been converted into restaurants, cafes, and shops.
