Lake County Communities

Big lake beauty. Small town charm.

As you visit the quaint, small towns in Lake County, you’ll discover that each community exudes a unique vibe with its historic sites and landmarks, locally-owned restaurants and cafes, and adorable gift shops that offer artisan-crafted, often North-Shore-inspired works of art. 

You’ll feel the impact of our industries and the meaningful work of the big-lake fishermen, the iron-ore miners, loggers, hospitality workers, artists and entrepreneurs. You’ll get to know us through our welcoming smiles, friendly chats, and insider travel tips.

When you escape from the big city rush, you’ll feel the spirit of the wilderness, the love for Lake Superior, and the laid-back northern Minnesota culture reflected by the people and businesses in Lake County.
