What To Do
Find something a little different in Grand Marais. The shops are locally owned with selections to match the whim of the owner and their desire to showcase uncommon wares. Most of the shops are on the same street as East Bay Suites, the avenues that connect to Highway 61, and along Highway 61 with a few outlying shops. Nothing is more than a five minute drive and most is less than a five minute walk.
Only in Grand Marais

This is our department store. Check it out. You’ll find an excellent line of quality shoes, games, toothpaste, the socks you forgot to pack, cards, books, classic souvenirs, and a fabulous kids section of paddle balls, whoopee cushions, bubbles, jacks and rubber snakes.
