Grand Marais is located on the northwestern shore of Lake Superior in northeastern Minnesota. It is an entry point for the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, situated at the beginning of the Gunflint Trail. The Superior Hiking Trail passes near Grand Marais, and Judge C. R. Magney State Park is nearby, with its unusual Devil’s Kettle waterfalls. Grand Marais Harbor is protected by Artist’s Point, a barrier island formed by lava that was connected to the mainland by gravel deposited by lake currents. Due to the pleasant summer climate with Lake Superior’s cooling and temperature moderating effect, and due to the lake-effect snows in winter, tourism is a large component of the town’s economy. Grand Marais is host to numerous festivals throughout the year.
