LAKE SUPERIOR, MINNESOTA
Despite its snowy reputation, Minnesota has ideal temps in the 70s and 80s for SUPing in summer. Head to Lake Superior — the world’s largest, by surface area — and paddle surf along Park Point, a long, narrow sand spit in Duluth that divides Lake Superior from St. Louis Bay. Cruise bayside for views of the harbor’s massive cargo ships or lakeside to see the famous vertical Aerial Lift Bridge and lighthouses. Rent from North Shore SUP on the bayside of Park Point/ ($15/hour, $50/day; duluthsup.com)
