Grand Marais, MN, what a neat place

Great food awaits you at the Blue Water Cafe

Hard-to-find outdoor clothing, like wool shirts, is this store's specialty
In yesterday's posting about our long winter road trip I included a photo from Grand Marais, Minnesota of Sven and Ole's Pizza shop. This place is a one-of-kind restaurant that is legendary in the northwoods. I don't believe there is a more popular bumper sticker in Minnesota or Northwestern Ontario than Sven and Ole's Pizza.
Grand Marais is a small town on Highway 61 about a two hours' drive north of Duluth. This highway parallels Lake Superior all the way to the Canadian border crossing at Pigeon River.
It is one of the most beautiful drives in the world and Grand Marais is one of neatest places to visit. It seems to be a haven for artists of all forms and their arts and crafts are offered for sale at lots of shops and galleries at quite reasonable prices.
The little town is also full of unique stores and restaurants. Besides Sven and Ole's, one of our favourite restaurants is the Blue Water Cafe. We have always had great meals there.
Right across the street is the Ben Franklin department store. This place is stuffed with great outdoors clothing, in particular, and it has tall sizes, something I appreciate.
