Seniors Drive Circle Tour Of Lake Superior SUNDAY COFFEE WITH JEB

THUNDER BAY, ON  ----    January 11, 2015    ----  This senior enjoys Circle Loops. My wife and I took two Loop Tours via Circle Tour MapGrey Line on Oahu and a year later on the Big Island. It’s a great way to see firsthand the principal sites and to stop along the way, shoot photos and dine.

While Lake Superior is the largest of the Great Lakes, the shortest segment of the LSCT is the part in Wisconsin between Superior and Hurley/Ironwood. Wisconsin’s 144 miles of Lake Superior Circle Tour comes in just behind Minnesota’s 154 miles, Ontario’s 485 miles and Michigan’s 520 miles.

Senior Travelers Like Great Drives

Lake SuperiorMidwest Living Magazine writes that this Circle Loop is “one of the world’s greatest drives.” Bikers who have made this trip call it an “Epic Journey.” They note that “The ride around Lake Superior is humbling, scenic, tasty and spectacular.

The Circle Loop takes senior travelers “through three states and one massive province, experiencing different cultures and local traditions.” Bikers say that that this is one of North America’s must do routes.

Lake Superior Circle Tour is one of those trips that invites senior visitors to explore very special places around Lake Superior; visit the Canadian province of Ontario and three U.S. states – Minnesota, Wisconsin & Michigan.

Waterfalls, Lighthouses, Kayakers and Hikers

The route appeals  to waterfall watchers, lighthouse fans and history buffs. It’s a magnet for kayakers and hikers. It makes a great honeymoon and also a great family trip with grandkids. Children adore the many pebble beaches.

“Lake Superior Circle Tour can trace its history back to a loosely-organized ‘circle route’ around the Big Lake in the 1960s. Promoted by local tourist organizations by way of brochures, pamphlets and other promotional materials, the earlier incarnations of a loop route around the largest freshwater lake in the world were not signposted and travelers had to rely on the tourist brochures to find their way.”

No more. I’ve discovered a helpful Travel Planner for you senior travelers who are  interested in taking this memorable trip around Lake Superior. Maps,  Directory with mileage data. If you found this LSCT neat, check out the other Great Lakes Circle Tours on Google. jeb
