From mid-May until early August, parking will be at a premium in downtown Grand Marais. Highway 61 will be closed through the central section of town and reduced to one lane on the west side of downtown. Significant on-street parking will be eliminated by this work.
However, Grand Marais offers lots of free parking just a few blocks from downtown in the residential area north of Highway 61. Visitors who can avoid parking downtown are urged to park in those residential areas and walk to their destinations. Grand Marais is compact, and distances to everything are short. To the extent we can avoid parking and traffic jam ups in the downtown area, the more enjoyable and relaxing the summer will be for all involved.
