Lake Superior is an alluring draw for visitors to its famous shores.

As it turns out, travelers from the three states and a Canadian province that surround it have been raving about destinations and attractions they find there.

Lake Superior magazine compiled its Best of the Lake survey, which garnered responses from 1,500 people about the choicest sites near the water in Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Ontario.

Michigan had multiple locations in the eight categories the publication listed on its website, here are a few:
