Road Trippin’


More towns. More woods. More Shore. 

Consider Superior the ultimate fun, affordable basecamp for exploring a region bursting with inspiration. Here on the shores of the greatest of the great lakes, the wild beckons. It’s kinda like getting the best of two places—the Twin Ports, and Wisconsin and Minnesota—for the price of one.

Short Drives

Got a busy schedule?

Take a short trip through country fields and forests with stops in charming northern Wisconsin small towns. Cross the bridge into our Twin Port city of Duluth, and explore the famed North Shore or South Shore of Lake Superior. When you start an adventure from Superior, the world is your cheese curd. Or Lake trout. Or craft brew. Mmmm. Tasty. 

Duluth, Minnesota

Only five miles away! 

As our sibling Twin Port city that shares the Superior Harbor, Duluth is just a few minutes away over the Blatnik Bridge, Bong Bridge or Oliver Bridge. With Canal Park, the Lake Superior Zoo, Spirit Mountain and much more, everything is close by when you stay in Superior.
