North Shore Trivia

     Think you know alot about the North Shore? Then test yourself and you may just win a trip up North!

Welcome to Cook County Trivia Contest!

Cook County – Way North of Ordinary

Cook County is a destination of perfect extremes. A place filled with incredible adventure, where you can traverse the state’s highest mountain, tallest waterfall and longest downhill ski runs.

It’s also a place where you can seek a peaceful escape along the pristine shoreline of the world’s greatest lake. Paddle your worries away in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. Or untangle life’s stresses along 400 kilometers of beautifully groomed cross country ski trails.

Whatever you do, life is far from ordinary in Cook County. The stars are so bright you could read a book under the beaming night sky. And the meaning of a hiking trail is 376 miles of beautifully maintained footpaths through the Superior National Forest.

So whether you want an adventure that pushes you to the extremes or a simple getaway with family and friends, Cook County will turn up the volume on your vacation and keep you coming back for more. Again and again and again.


The winner of the Cook County Trivia Contest will enjoy a family adventure package in Cook County for two adults and two kids 17 or under. Revel in a 3-night, 4-day getaway including lodging, a cozy family dinner, and two adventure activities of your choice (depending on the season), such as dog-sledding, biking, kayaking, downhill skiing, or cross-country skiing by candlelight. With luck, the northern lights will make an appearance! Approximate retail value: $1,500.00. Valid for one year from award date.
