Minnesota’s Highway 61 has been designated by the U.S. National Byway Center as one of the most beautiful drives in America.
Also known as North Short Scenic Drive, this highway has been named an All-American Road, starting at Duluth to Grand Portage on the U.S.-Canadian border. The total distance is approximately 154 miles.
The drive along the sweeping shoreline of Lake Superior with spectacular vistas is breathtaking. The highway is bordered by the Sawtooth Mountains and thousands of acres of aspen, birch, and pine trees.
