VISIT WHITE BEAR LAKE

02 - White Bear Lake.jpg

There will be a boat flotilla, a view inside a vintage period home, and plenty of other surprises. Light dinner is included with optional cash bar. Mobility considerations cheerfully accommodated.

Hosted by the White Bear Arts Center, and the White Bear Lake Area Historical Society.

Bus departure time is 3:30 pm, returning at 9:00 pm. Travel time is approximately 30 minutes, one-way by bus.

Old Frontenac had been a favorite Mississippi resort spot for the upper crust of Saint Paul for many years by the time Fitzgerald signed into the Frontenac Inn in July, 1909. Many of his friends and his sister, Annabel, were also guests of the Inn that summer. Because the founder of the town forbade commercial development, the town has changed very little in the past 108 years. Come see a time capsule of turn-of-the-last century resort life, with great vistas of the mighty Mississippi. See a reproduction of the "pig-tail" bridge where Fitzgerald rode his bike in 1909. Lunch is included in tour price. Some walking may be part of the tour.  

Bus departure time 9 am, return approximately 4 pm.   

$45 USD  includes all travel by bus, entrance to sites, lunch and guided tour. Please note that this tour runs concurrently with the Duluth/ Lake Superior Tour.
