22 Jewels of Lake Superior provide a unique blend of cultural, historic, artistic and natural resources to discover. 21 of the 22 Apostle Islands, along with 12 miles of Wisconsin mainland make up the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, a federally protected National Park. Here you can see some of the most amazing sandscapes in the world including the famous “singing sands” on Stockton Island’s Julian Bay. Kayakers flock to the area to paddle through the breathtaking sea caves, and when the winter weather is just right, these same caves transform into magnificent ice caves.
Voted one of the “Coolest Small Towns in the US”, Madeline Island’s La Pointe is the only year-round inhabited town in the island chain. If seeking adventure, you’ll find miles of sandy beaches, hiking, biking, kayaking, paddleboarding, sailing, and boating. You’ll also need a hearty appetite as many of the restaurants serve up the freshest whitefish and trout you’ll ever taste. And representing over 100 artists, explore the galleries and shops that feature local artisans in a variety of media – all inspired by the islands and pristine waters of Lake Superior.
