Guidebooks for Northern Minnesota


New "Best North Shore" website now live and filled with content about north shore trails, scenic destinations, seasonal tips, and great adventures

Andrew and Sally spent years pulling this new website together and it's finally ready. It's new, it's loaded with content — everything from seasonal wildflower reports to new hiking trails, and it's unlike any other information available about the North Shore. We hope you enjoy it! Bookmark, read what others are saying about their experiences in our beautiful Lake Superior region, and add your comments or questions after reading.

Andrew Slade celebrates 15 years on the air at KUMD radio

Northland Morning host Lisa Johnson recently awarded Andrew a certificate thanking him for 15 years of on-air service to KUMD radio, where he spent many Tuesday mornings doing "Andrew Slade's Best North Shore" segment of the show, which has now come to an end. We'll miss KUMD but continue to support and appreciate the great work they do serving local issues on the air. Listen for Andrew chiming in during Pledge Weeks and offering our guidebooks for lucky listeners who want to share the love with KUMD by supporting them financially.
