  • Mike Stout, Prior Lake, MN says:

    Having heard about Bayfield and urged by others to visit, I finally made the trip this weekend. It was everything that I had heard. Beautiful vistas, lovely shops, friendly merchants, great restaurants, live music, and much more. I visited a nearby apple orchard where I sampled the best caramel color apple ever. The only thing I would have changed would be my staying for an additional day or longer.

  • Kieran O'Hagan - Carmel, NY says:

    Found your lovely city driving cross country. There is no specific highlight…your whole city is awesome. It is now my summer retreat.

  • Lori W - Green Bay, WI says:

    My husband and I drove to Bayfield recently. We were eager to explore the ice caves along the national lakeshore. The pilgrimage with other travelers from across the Midwest U.S. rewarding, the wonders of the ice caves were spectacular, and the people of Bayfield were warm and friendly. The community deserves to be applauded for the extra efforts taken to welcome the many travelers that are finding only helpful, accommodating residents. We’ll be back to see you again someday!

  • Rachel B - Marquette, Mi says:

    My friends and I heard about the Islands on the news and thought what a neat idea for a day road trip. Couldn’t have asked for a better day!! The drive from Marquette was very simple and not too long. The locals are nothing but friendly, and very helping when we asked for a good diner. We walked a bit further than the most of the crowd, well worth it. We could explore and frolic like we were little kids again. Besides the caves being the highlight of our day, we got the lucky opportunity to drive across Lake Superior to Madeline Island to eat a wonderful dinner. All-in-all, best spontaneous trip I’ve taken!!
