When it comes to lakes, our state knows a little something about superlatives—we've got the most and we're next to the biggest, so it stands to reason our waterborne activities should be the best. Live up to our standards for unparalleled fun with this first-rate Adventure: a sea kayaking day trip on Lake Superior at Split Rock Lighthouse State Park, with a hike, a catered lunch, and a lighthouse tour, followed by a wood-fired pizza dinner and tasting of local craft beer.
We'll gather at the Park 'n' Ride on 2750 Cleveland Avenue in Roseville, where our team of outdoorsmen will be waiting to load us on the bus for the trip to Split Rock Lighthouse State Park. When we arrive, we'll split into two groups. Half the group will team up with experts from Positive Energy Outdoors, strap on our gear, and receive a safety briefing before heading out for two grand hours of sea kayaking on Lake Superior.
As the first group hits the water, the second group will head out on a self-guided hike with our Adventures staff around the state park, taking in the fresh northern air and enjoying the natural beauty of the area. After taking in the sites of the park, we will turn our gaze to Split Rock Lighthouse where we'll have a guided tour of this historic national landmark.
With our first activities complete, we'll break for lunch and sit down for a lakeside picnic-style lunch courtesy of The Vanilla Bean, including a gourmet deli sandwich, piece of fruit, chips, and cookie. With bellies full, each group will switch to the other activities.
When we've maxed out on outdoor fun, we'll hop on our coach and head down the shore to Duluth's Clyde Park Restaurant, where we'll enjoy a tasting of four craft beers from Lake Superior Brewing Company, located just across the street. As we sip on our tastings, we'll also munch on paired appetizers (wood oven garlic bread, spring rolls, and fried ravioli). Then, we will sink our teeth into five different varieties of wood-fired pizzas. After this unrivaled Adventure, we're sure to head home with a some seriously super-lative smiles—a sure-fire sign that our state is the best.
