    5 Things You MUST do in Brainerd

    Where was that first photograph taken?

    It looks like it is way up north, by Isle Royal maybe?

    I just drove past Mile Lacs last night! Sad to see the Dairy Queen in Garrison close. At least they still have the Blue Goose.

    Don't forget everything to do in the Brainerd Lakes Area. We have Paul Bunyan Land, plenty of trails for hiking/biking/skiing/snowmobiling, world-class golf courses, the Mississippi Belle, and SO much more!

    The Aerial Lift Bridge is among Duluth's best-known attractions. Originally designed as a vertical lift bridge, it was first constructed in 1905 as a gondola bridge--one of only two in the US. It was converted to its current vertical lift design in 1929-1930. The bridge spans the Duluth entry to the Duluth-Superior harbor. This entrance to the harbor was first dug by hand in 1871 to compete with the natural harbor entrance between Minnesota Point and Wisconsin Point, known as the Superior entry. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.

    Wow that lake front cabin looks incredible. And I had no idea bout that sculpture garden. That would be very cool to go see.
