    diving and driving

    If you want the best of both worlds you need to head up to Duluth and the North Shore. Both Lake Superior and Highway 61 are a ton of fun. There's a ample supply of Scuba diving areas from Palisade Head to Split Rock, but both are advanced diving areas.

    101 south of highway 5 is kinda fun, but there is usually a decent amount of traffic.

    yes, 101 is fun, but short. I Iive near there. I see a red ferrari on that road all the time. I recently raced a Carerra S near there and he won, but he couldn't get more than a few feet ahead. (I think he was scared... otherwise he would've had me by a mile.)

    There are a lot of side roads/country roads once you hit the St. Michael exit (94 west 35-40 min from Minneapolis) or you can go out in the Medina area (35 min west on 55). If you go out there I suggest getting off of the highway and spend time just getting lost and driving around. I used to have some friends that lived way out in the sticks so when I'd go out there I would purposely get lost for an hour or so. Once you hit those areas there isnít much civilization west.
