#2: Post Storm Agate Hunting

The big waves always churn up fresh agates along Superior’s many beaches. Come on up find them before the snow flies!

#3: Surfing


You don’t actually have to search, but you should stop at some of the surfing hot spots like Stoney Point to see if the crazies are playing in the waves.

#4: Training

Trail runners and mountain bikers love Lutsen, and November is a great time to change. Lodging prices are lower, and the trails are in great condition. And it’s cool enough to scramble along the myriad of trails without overheating.
