Eclectic! Take a ferry from Bayfield, WI to Madeline Island of the Apostle Islands on the south shore of Lake Superior. A fun hippy-styled summer place to eat pizza and drink beer under a high tent full of hilarious art and great people watching. Worth going if you plan to bike (or rent a moped) to explore the historical island, swim at the parks on the north end, go sailing in or out of the marina... Bayfield is full of BnBs, galleries, tourist events, and apple orchards, not to mention the nearby Big Top Chautauqua to the south.

Winter Thursday nights live music brings a crowd. You can ski or watch the skiers from the lodge while enjoying beer and food. Frizbee Golf and Mountain Biking and seasonal gatherings like the Archery festival are part of the scene. Popular snowboarding and skiing venue during snow season, not as expensive or steep as Spirit Mtn. Closer to Wrenshall. Some Sunday morning brunches offered at the top of the ski hill in the new Colorado-style lodge. Call ahead.
