Free things to do on the North Shore

If you're looking for an afternoon or a whole week filled with fun on a budget, you'll want to be sure to check out  our list of Free Things To Do on the North Shore below: Here are a few things we recommend doing: 1. Look for Agates. Search the shores of Lake Superior (or gravel roads – but that doesn't sound as magical, does it?) for agates.
