As the only region of the state where active iron mining still exists, the mesabi has long drawn those interested in state and national history to its mine overlooks and museums. But woven into these rugged minelands are lakes, forests and trails that set the stage for experiences you won't find anywhere else in the country.
Secluded on the Moccasin Point peninsula of iconic Lake Vermillion in northern Minnesota, you'll find an exquisite half log sided home on south facing sandy shoreline, hosting every amenity one hopes to find in a premier lakefront home. What is not apparent is how inexpensive this property is to maintain due to the reliable energy efficient systems running quietly in the background.
Supporting the arts has a long established history in Grand Rapids, and a lot of that has to do with The Reif Center and Northern Community Radio KAXE/KBXE. The two organizations have partnered for a monthly concert series bringing high quality Minnesota musicians to the stage in Grand Rapids.
When half of downtown Grand Marais closes for the off-season, the North House Folk School campus continues to bustle with activity. Program Director Jessa Frost says their fall and winter offerings "give people who love the North Shore a reason to visit during the colder months. They can sit by a woodstove with a view of Lake Superior, craft with friends, and learn something new."
About 1.1 billion years ago, after millennia of straining and twisting as it migrated across the globe, the landmass that would become North America finally fractured. An enormous rift opened, a two-thousand-mile-long wound across the desolate plain at the continent's core. No grass or trees softened the barren, broken rock surface--multicellular life had not even evolved yet.
We asked for the best of the best - your all-time favorites in Minnesota. The ultimate standouts and here they are!
All seasons along the North Shore are breathtaking but one season that really stands out is fall. There's just nothing like the warm sunshine, crisp air, and colored leaves that illuminate the shoreline. Fall is a great season to get outside, be active, and really take in all of those colors that decorate the shore. Bottom line: the North Shore is the definition of the perfect fall foliage. Whether it's a quick trip to Duluth to get a piece of it or a longer venture up the shore, there is something for everyone looking to get their fall fix.
Storytelling. That's truly our mission with Lake Time Magazine - to go beyond. To make the connection, expand the boundaries of our individualistic pursuit of happiness, and shift reality. The more we promote, applaud, and actively inspire well-intended efforts, the more others will be drawn to them.
In that spirit, we urge you to take a cue from those who are, and have been, making waves - the adventurers, the activists, the makers, the doers, the dreamers... they're all right here in the pages of Lake Time Magazine. And, amazingly, in our neck of the woods. We love the idea of the unknown, and we celebrate those bold enough to explore.
