Gorgeous area with lots of vistas to do photography from. Worth the trip and then some. There is so much to do in this area and even though it seems like miles away, it’s an easy ride up the North Shore.

Such a fun (and kind of risky) trek out to the lighthouse. You tentatively balance on concrete blocks to see this lighthouse, and it’s low-key super enjoyable. It’s not terribly dangerous, and an excellent opportunity to finagle your way around strangers! Plus it’s so picturesque...More

We enjoyed sitting on a bench overlooking the bay. Was a chilly day but always relaxing and fun to visit Grand Marais to shop and explore

The lighthouse in Grand Marais is a small lighthouse with easy access. It's nothing really special but well worth a visit when you're in Grand Marais.

Love to watch the light from town although you can also go out on the rocks and walk to the lighthouse and enjoy artists point. Usually a cool breeze off the lake so dress accordingly.

You can walk out to the lighthouse on a path of Rock and Concrete. Watch your step! Beautiful spot to stand and look.

Great place to run around on the rocks, walk out to the lighthouse, and get some stunning views of the area.
