Duluth & the North Shore
For those of you unfamiliar with the idea, mini-moons are a fairly recent thing in terms of wedding trends. For many, the mini-moon serves as a quick little getaway after the wedding but before the real-deal honeymoon. You may have limited time off work (or limited funds), orrrr you may just want to save your hot n’ steamy honeymoon for the dead of winter. It doesn’t matter why you choose to take a mini-moon, all that matters is that you enjoy it! I personally love the idea of mini-moons, and since I also love living in Minnesota, I figured it’d be worth mish-mashing two of my faves into one fun series. Stay tuned, I plan to cover a few more “Minne-moon” destinations in the coming weeks!
So here’s the first: Duluth and the North Shore.
There are honestly so many reasons to travel to Lake Superior’s North Shore. To start, it has some of the prettiest scenery in the entire state. I mean, you can’t beat the rocky overlooks and the miles of open water. And visiting in the fall? Come onnnn. But let’s be real, no matter the season, you’re going to find some of the most beautiful views all in one place. For this particular locale, check out some of my best recommendations based on your interests as a couple.

For the couples who love local stuff:
For the couples who love adventure:
For the couples who love to try something new:
And there you have it. It’s such a tiny look at what the North Shore can offer, but I hope it gives you some inspo to plan your own upcoming vacay. Cheers Minne-mooners, and stay tuned for the next Minnesota mini-moon destination!
with love, Emily
