    I know for a fact that it goes east of Duluth, because we were on it this summer. It's a beautiful route through MN and WI. At Hurley, WI, it heads into Michigan's UP. That's where it's broken up. We were on it from Hurley WI to Bemidji MN -- mostly forested, good road for the most part, not heavily traveled but you may have to pass some farm machinery.

    Last year I drove on US 2 from St Ignace, MI to Escanaba, MI. on my counter clockwise trip around Lake Michigan. It was a highway I enjoyed because Lake Michigan could be seen more frequently than from other highways. There were signs saying something like "This is not a freeway". I assume to get drivers to observer the 55 mph speed limit. I was going westbound. Eastbound this section ends at I-75 in St Ignace where you would have to follow I-75 into Canada.

    In 2012 I took a ferry from Plattsburgh, NY across Lake Champlain where I joined US-2 to get to Vermont. US-2 had come down the the chain of islands in the center of the lake from the Canadian border. After I went across the causeway to the mainland I went through Smugglers Notch to Stowe, Vermont so left US 2. Later I did get back on US 2 in New Hampshire and followed it to where it joins I-95 in Maine.

    I had to chuckle to myself because I could remember the "jammer's" spiel on the Red Bus Tour going from the eastern entrance to the western entrance of Glacier National Park. He said US-2 was know as the highway that went from Portland (ME) to Portland (OR). Well not quite although US-2 certainly had been scenic wherever I have been on it.

    My experience as well, hence choosing it as a possible route back to Boston. But not going through Canada this year. Looking forward to taking it through MI though.
