Located on the shore of Lake Superior, the Aurora Summit is surrounded by beautiful Minnesota State Parks and scenery, including lighthouses, rivers, waterfalls, and palisades. With a $7 day pass to the state parks system, guests can take advantage of all the parks dotting the Lake Superior shoreline during the day.
Venue for Aurora Summit 18:
Superior Shores Resort & Conference Center
Two Harbors, Minnesota
Activities after hours include everything from Aurora Chasing and Light Painting to Night Sky Photography. On Saturday night, we walk out to the northward-facing pebble beach, which is located directly behind the hotel, to enjoy the night sky and take photographs. We light a bonfire to keep everyone warm. Pack for cold temps, bring camera gear with safe storage, and plan to be out late, immersed in the wonders of the night sky!
Sunrise over Lake Superior is a must! The lake shore faces north, east or northeast, depending on your vantage point, and there are many access points scattered along the edge. Whether you’re a photographer or not, this sunrise is one you won’t soon forget!
