5. If you go to Grand Marais, don't miss the Pickle Barrel museum
It's better than it sounds! It was the former summer house of an artist who did cartoons in the 1930s of some characters called The Teeny Weenies. They were small and created their houses out of things like pickle barrels. The residents of Grand Marais apparently clubbed together one year and built the artist a house that was a giant pickle barrel. I think it's kind of a dubious compliment, and not a place I'd want to live, but the fact that it's still there and that the Teeny Weenies weren't forgotten is kind of interesting.
