The Great Minnesota Bucket List: Thrifty Travels
No need to break the bank to plan an outing that is fun, fresh, and fabulous.
Battle the Beacon
Satiate your yearning for historical intrigue with a trip to Split Rock Lighthouse
along the shores of Lake Superior. Costumed guides lead you through life as a lighthouse keeper in the 1920s, and you can test your strength with a one-third-mile hike to the bottom of the 130-foot cliff on which the lighthouse sits. Nearby fun is of the outdoorsy variety—picnics, camping, kayaking, and trails available for hiking, biking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing.
3713 Split Rock Lighthouse Rd., 218-226-6372
Don’t forget your camera; even a novice will come away with frame-worthy shots.
