Park
“An absolute must to visit. Drive, bike, run or walk around the island. But be sure to stop at Sunset Point and get out to explore a bit. Walk out to the blackrocks area, walk on some of the oldest rocks in the world and watch people jump into the lake from the local favorite cliff jumping spot. The best local views of Lake Superior, the rugged shores and cliffs. Ice cream shop, bandshell concerts, playground and nature center here as well. No cars in winter, but you can still walk or snowshoe around the island. ”
