“If we only had more time” is a familiar phrase to most of us. It doesn’t seem to matter in what regard, we’re always wishing we had more. Time is a funny thing. You can’t buy it, find it, or make it. We can, however, make More Time for Us. Welcome to our journey.
Once upon a time, a long time ago (2006), two crazy kids decided to take a sabbatical. They dubbed it the Grand Adventure and with Cassie as their steadfast home on wheels, they departed for the beauty, serenity, and adventure of the Canadian West and Alaska.
Grand Marais is a perfect small town, with busy streets and many cool things to do. Got a trailer? No problem. Head to the RV and tent campsite with 300 campsites to choose from. Want a nice calm site? Head to the tent camping area, where campers are easy going, and it is usually peaceful.
Try and get a spot close to lake Superior, where rock skipping is easy. Moving on to the town, Grand Marais has many buildings close together. The whole city is on a slight hill, if you head into town! If you have your kids with you, take a scooter, or just walk up the hill to the YMCA, a playground and a skate park. (Above.) If you are alone, or with your spouse, try some of the coffee shops scattered around town. Maybe take a trip to the lighthouse, that is accessible by a large stretch of pier and rocks. The lighthouse offers a spectacular view of Lake Superior. Weather your looking for some fun, or some me time, Grand Marais is the place for you. -Liam
