Two Harbors, on the north shore of Lake Superior, lies in a scenic area of deep forests and rugged shorelines. Ore boats take on iron ore and taconite pellets at the docks in Agate Bay, destined for eastern steel mills. Burlington Bay is preserved for recreational activities. In addition to the area's mineral resources, the forests supply an abundance of timber, large and small game animals, and lakes that provide exciting fishing. The community is active in planning its own future and generously involved with the educational development of its youth.
