    I drive through Duluth every year for the last 40+.

    Going here, just outside of Orr, MN, about 90 minutes north of Duluth. Here's the next generation learning the ropes:

    in the winters we head here. The Abaco Islands, with some of the best secluded beaches nobody seems to know about just off the Florida coast. It's the Bahamas before the tourists showed up and fucked everything up:

    Turns out, it does lead somewhere in the winter.

    There was an article in the regional news site, with more pics. They had an Ice festival up in the U.P. It is the biggest for Ice climbers in N. America.

    You can climb frozen waterfalls and the spray from Superior.

    Cool, but I would pass. I've seen enough ice to last me a lifetime! :D I'd rather take a bridge to a warm tropical paradise.

    K, how about this one. 7 mile bridge. Destination: Key West.

    I used to vacation regularly in Key West in my 20-30's, and had some wild ass times there, but it changed quite a bit and I ended up ditching it for the deserted pristine beaches of the Abaco Islands.

    Anyway, here's your bridge[​IMG]
