Duluth in a Day

Overview

The Duluth area is very big and there is so much to see. We were only able to spend a few hours there but we did enjoy a few things and there were some things that would have been cool to do if we had more time. Canal Park is a must. It can take 5 minutes or 5 hours, I don’t recommend 5 minutes. Take a walk or just sit and enjoy the view. What ever you do stop and take some pictures and you can say you have seen it. We enjoyed just hanging out and watching our son chase the birds.The Lift Bridge is also a must see. You can find out the shipping schedule from the visitor shop on Canal Park, I suggest finding out when the ships are going to be passing through and try to catch ...Read More

Grandma’s is big and well know in Duluth. Almost the whole downtown lake area is some sort of Grandma’s relation. There is a Grandma’s Market place, Grandma’s Bar and Grill, Grandma’s Sports Garden, and there is even a Grandma’s marathon. We chose to eat at Grandma’s Bar and Grill. It was this huge building that sat right on the water, on the cove side. When we went in to eat we were the only ones in the restaurant. It was of course 2 in the afternoon. We got seated, and ordered our food. It seemed like it took forever to get our food. Once we got our food, it was a big disappointment. The food was not very good at all. I ordered a hamburger and I really think I have had better at McDon...Read More

Canal Park is a main highlight in the Downtown Duluth area. It is a huge area of land that lines Lake Superior, provides a walking trail and tons of space for kids to run wild. Canal Park is located at the end of the peninsula where the lift bridge connects with another piece of land. The Lake walk, which starts at Bayfront Park goes for three miles and end in Canal Park. Canal Park is a great place to watch big ships come through the bay. The Bridge that crosses the bay lifts up and people flock to the waterway that leads the boats through. The boats that come through are some of the biggest I have ever seen (see pictures) Also in Canal Park is a visitor center where you ...Read More

The Lift bridge is a major land mark in the city of Duluth. It has been around since the 1900’s. When it was first built is carries people across by way of gondola. Over the years it turned into a bridge that cars could access and cross from Canal Park to Park Point. The bridge crosses the bay canal, which provides a way for shipping and cargo. The bridge is also lifted for smaller boats that give tours or small cruises. I found this bridge to bee unique in that it is a road, which crosses the water, but the only way ANY boat can cross is to lift the whole road up into the air. It is not like most lift bridges you see over the water that lifts up and makes an opening at the top, split...Read More

Story/Tip

Duluth is the last stop before you loose any sight of Lake Superior. North Shore Drive begins in Duluth and travels all the way north till you reach the border of Minnesota. The road travels along Lake Superior all the way and is a beautiful sight to see.Once you leave the Duluth area you can plan on not seeing another big town till you get to Thunder Bay Canada. All that is along the North Shore are small towns with camping, skiing, fishing, waterfalls, and other out door activities. There area several state parks right off the road and each one offers something different. The scenery is unbelievable through this area and there is always something new to see. I would com...Read More
