New Thunder Bay waterfront has revitalized the city.
Leif Pettersen who made the seven-hour drive from the Twin Cities last summer has suggestions for a perfect two-day itinerary noting how Thunder Bay has undergone a heartening revitalization that will surprise people who haven’t visited the city for a few years. You will appreciate the impressive improvements made to the Lake Superior waterfront at Prince Arthur’s Landing alone, resulting in a magazine photo shoot-ready harbor adorned with wonderful public art. Condos and a five star hotel are being developed showcasing the city is clearly on the rise, it's quite a thing to see. I didn't know any of this when I arrived with my family for a late summer weekend with rooms booked at the Best Western Nor’wester under…
Liquid Gold Rush: Where To Get It, How It's Made And Where to Taste It!

My first outfit up on the Quintet Lakes was homespun: coffee cans nailed on trees, rolled birch bark spigots, the sap hauled with the dog team, and an outdoor boil-down on a single pan over an open fire.

An up-scale dining experience in Thunder Bay since 1999
The simple exterior of the Caribou Restaurant +  Wine Bar hides a classy and warm restaurant, one of the most popular in Thunder Bay. The local owned and operated restaurant around since 1999 is an orginal concept of Tom Pazianos and Bob Stewart, who are coincidently  also the owners of the very successful, local Keg restaurant. For upwards of twelve years the Caribou has been a favorite locale for business lunch meetings and for those looking to impress someone on a first date. In fact, Tom Pazianos warned me that a photo of the interior, with happy customers, might compromise a romantic situation. (Aha. A little Photoshop was in order.) Tom and Bob shared their decades long immersion with the…
