Detailed descriptions of where to stay and eat, what to do, and when to go to experience unique events tell North Shore visitors everything they need to know to plan their Superior trip. Whether providing facts about well-known sites or presenting discoveries exciting even for the seasoned North Shore explorer, this new edition of Nina's North Shore Guide covers the Lake Superior area through all seasons and for all budgets. Nina A. Simonowicz owns a tourism marketing company in Grand Marais, Minnesota. Betsy Bowen works from her studio in Grand Marais and has written and illustrated several books about northern Minnesota. Sidebar: "This book accomplishes the near impossible: it's attractive, well-organized, just about as complete as it could be, and at the same time it's small enough to be quite portable. And did I mention readability? Nina's personality shines through, making it a fun read as well." -Minnesota Monthly
