The great state of Minnesota is beautiful during all seasons, but come Autumn, when the air is crisp and the trees begin to turn fiery colors of orange, yellow, and red, the Land of Lakes really shines.  No place in the state showcases these beautiful Fall colors more than the North Shore of Lake Superior.  Join us for a full day of exploration as we take in the majesty of this region by bus, train, boat, and foot.

Our day will begin bright and early as we gather at the Park-n-Ride in Roseville, where your GetKnit Gurus will be waiting to greet you with coffee and pastries. From there, a luxury coach bus will whisk us away to the historic port town of Duluth, MN.  Upon arrival, we will transfer from bus to private train car aboard the historic North Shore Scenic Railroad.  Our 1.5 hour journey down these scenic tracks will allow us to take in the beauty all around as we weave in and out of golden forests, over waterfalls, and along the shores of the greatest of all the lakes.

After our scenic ride north, we will arrive in Two Harbors where our coach bus will be waiting for us and we will take a quick drive to Split Rock Lighthouse State Park.  Here, we will head to our private lakeside pavilion for a hearty buffet of fresh salad and three homemade soups from local favorite, The Vanilla Bean Restaurant.

After re-fueling and re-energizing, we will embark on a historical tour of the area surrounding iconic Split Rock Lighthouse.  Following our tour, there will be plenty of extra time to explore the grounds surrounding the lighthouse, go on a crisp fall hike, explore the historic museum, or simply take in the majesty of Lake Superior.

A quick trip to back to Duluth aboard our coach will lead us to a breathtaking hour-long sunset cruise on Lake Superior aboard Vista Fleet’s Queen.  On the boat, we will enjoy a beer, wine, or cocktail as our Captain navigates the graceful waters and colorful coastline.  Upon docking, we will “choose our own adventure” in Canal Park.  Take a stroll along the lake walk, watch the rise and fall of the quintessential lift bridge, pop into a pub for a beer, visit a local distillery, or do some shopping at one of the many shops in this renowned area of the city.

After our exploration, we will satisfy our appetites at Canal Park Brewing Company with a hearty pub-style dinner chosen from one of their many specialties accompanied by your choice of craft beer, house wine, or rail drink.

The trip back to our beloved Twin Cities will round out this amazing day full of exploration and adventure.  We think you’ll agree that this day-trip will leave you with beautiful photos, wonderful memories, and a renewed appreciation for all that our diverse state has to offer.
