Explore the Boundary Waters of Northern Minnesota
When people think of vacations, at least outside the Midwest, northern Minnesota probably isn’t one of the first places that come to mind. What people don’t know is that the Boundary Water region of northern Minnesota is one of the most beautiful and uninhabited wilderness areas in the country.
The Boundary Waters are found north of Duluth, Minnesota, with one of the main towns in the region being Ely, MN. This area is a maze of small lakes and rivers cutting through vast pine forests, many of which can only be accessed by canoe. This area gets its namesake by being the area that divides the United States from Canada.
While the population in the area is low, there are plenty of places to camp and park your travel trailer. This will give you a nice place to call home base while you explore the many small lakes. Fishing in this area is a rite of passage, so you’ll not want to leave your fishing gear at home.
If you are craving some wilderness in your life and want to get away from the hustle and bustle of life, look no further than the Boundary Waters. It’s so beautiful and remote you’ll wonder why you’ve never heard of this place before!
