Shipping Cars To or From Port of Two Harbors
The Great Lakes of North America are large enough that they create deep natural harbors on the land areas surrounding them. The largest of the Great Lakes is Lake Superior, the largest fresh water lake in the entire world by surface area. It is shared by the states of Minnesota to the west and Wisconsin & Michigan to the South. The lake provides two deep harbors on the Shores of Lake County in Minnesota. The two harbors are specifically named Agate Bay and Burlington Bay, together known as the Port of Two Harbors.

How the Port of Two harbors came to be
Traditionally, the City of Two Harbors started as an iron mining town, then it grew into an industrial town housing cigar factories, bottling works, universal fiberglass 3M, and Granite Gear. The heavy industrial works led to export opportunities which is the foundation of how the Port of Two Harbors started off. Over the years, some of the industries shut down, but the port’s operations grew and expanded.
