Minnesota's Northeast region is made up primarily of vast woodlands and secluded lakes. This topography makes the Northeast a pristine area to camp, canoe, and fish. Dotted with logging towns, the area's east is bordered by Lake Superior, the largest freshwater body on earth. Superior's shoreline extends north to the border with Ontario, Canada, and though some sections are industrialized by docks and ports, there are many fine beaches, islands, and dunes that beg to be explored and enjoyed. Duluth sits on the western shore of Lake Superior and is one of the busiest ports in the country. While Duluth's heavy industry has downsized in recent years, its shipping history and waterfront location make it one of Northeast Minnesota's most interesting destinations. Venture to Canal Park and see the port's Aerial Lift Bridge rise as ships come to and leave from the harbor. Grand Rapids is another attractive spot, as this old lumber town is home to the Judy Garland Museum, dedicated to the controversial movie actress and singer who was born here. This appeals to her large family of fans as well as to the simply curious.
