More info: Grand Marais is a small town built along the North Shore of Lake Superior in Cook County, Minnesota and is nestled between Sawtooth Mountains and Lake Superior. Grand Marais Harbour is protected by Artist's Point, a barrier island formed by lava that was connected to the mainland by gravel deposited by lake currents, forming a tombolo

The area around Grand Marais was a bustling fur trading station in the 1700s, and the French Canadian Voyageurs termed the settled village "Grand Marais" ("Great Marsh"), referring to a marsh which was at the head of the small bay

Today, Grand Marais is a gateway to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW), via the Gunflint Trail, historically a footpath for travellers and fur traders from inland lakes to Lake Superior.
