The North Shore’s Split Rock Lighthouse is a gem. Dating to 1910, this Minnesota Historical Society property (which is surrounded by Split Rock Lighthouse State Park) is one of the best kept lighthouses in America. Plus, it offers killer views of Lake Superior. Aug. 7 is National Lighthouse Day, which makes a fitting time to learn about the importance of Split Rock and other lighthouses around the country. Need another reason to go? The readers of Lake Superior magazine recently named Split Rock one of the best public places to view the lake. Visitors can tour the lighthouse, fog-signal building and the keeper’s dwelling, restored to its 1920s appearance. The site is 20 miles northeast of Two Harbors on Hwy. 61. Entrance fee tops out at $9 for adults; more info at 218-226-6372.
