The southern shores of Lake Superior offer wide, sandy beaches that stretch out for miles. Whether you are a rockhound, sunbather, swimmer, or you want to enjoy the most beautiful sunsets in the world, you'll find a kind of peace and serenity that only exists here. You can stroll lakeshore beaches in any direction you choose and rarely encounter another living soul, aside from occasional wildlife...
