Snowmobiling, hiking, cross-country skiing and ATV trails are readily accessible throughout the county. Bordering our county is the largest freshwater lake in the world, Lake Superior. With its rugged beauty and pristine shoreline, it offers many recreational opportunities as well as historical shipwrecks, two operating lighthouses and two public marinas.

Special events occur during every season, from the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon in January to Grandma's Marathon in June, along with local community festivals.
