A couple of weeks ago, I paid a visit to my friends at Lake Superior Magazine in Duluth as I was making my way to Minneapolis for the Midwest Mountaineering Expo. It was just coincidence that it was proofing day and everyone there was working late but I had decided to bring them a box of Thunder Bay's famous persians. Needless to say, they loved the food offering and I had a great time chatting with everyone over coffee.

The entire team at Lake Superior Magazine, lead by Bob, Cindy, Konnie and Bob, are good and trusted friends of Tourism Thunder Bay and they continuously showcase our great city to the tens of thousands of loyal readers, residents and travellers around the lake basin.

I got to see the proof of the upcoming issue with a feature titled "The Not So Secret Thunder Bay" featuring such great little hidden-and not so hidden- gems as SailSuperior (, The Thunder Bay Observatory ( , and Thunder Bay's new competition level skateboard and BMX plaza located at Marina Park. I wont ruin the rest of the article for you but I encourage you to keep an eye out for the upcoming edition, sure to hit new stands in the city very shortly. If you don't subscribe or buy this magazine, I recommend it highly as it helps us know whats going on, not only in our city, but around the entire lake basin. We really are one big Lake Superior community and we need remember that working together and visiting each other benefits the entire region.

A side note is that the current edition, still on the stands, features an article on cycling around the lake and features quotes from Thunder Bay's Larry Lage of Excalibur Motorcycle Works. Motorcycle riding (and bicycling too for that matter) are great ways to see the lake and given the trends in motorcycle ownership over the past few years, its an ever increasingly important market for us all.

Check out for more information.
