If you enjoy watching ships, crave beautiful coastal scenery, being active outdoors year round, and don't mind brisk weather, visit Duluth. I spent summers here as a child, but recently revisited with my husband en route to Minnesota's North Shore for a hiking vacation. It's still wonderful.

"The San Franciso of the Midwest"

This local nickname for Duluth is a stretch, I can assure you, since I've lived in both cities. But there are enough similarities; the steep, inclined streets, the magnificent views of the water, both cities' economic dependence on two industries: shipping and tourism. The differences are obvious. While San Francisco is a cosmopolitan, international city, Duluth is a classic upper midwestern, industrial port town that, until recently, had seen better days. Thanks to tourism and the city's beautiful natural surroundings, those better days are on their way back. It may never be San Francisco, but with its unique geography and interesting activities, maybe it doesn't need to be.

It was a thrill-seeking trip to the mountains of Duluth, Minnosota. My friend and I were in search of hiking and camping trails also. It's a beautiful resort with a variety of different slopes for the avid snowboarder to enjoy.

Duluth is just a short drive from the Twin Cities, but is often overlooked as a place to visit. Truth is, Duluth makes a fantastic, quick getaway, and there is plenty to do in the area!

This was a weekend getaway that was totally unplanned on one of the busiest weekends of a Minnesota summer. Although we had a great time and many good memories... I'm not sure I would just take off with little or no planning again!

When I want to get away for a weekend Duluth is one of my favorite places to go. Just far enough away to get out and unwind, but not too far that it's much of a journey to get there.

Weekend in Duluth

Duluth is one of our favorite weekend getaways. It's busy harbor and international shipping traffic can easily make you forget that you're 1200 miles from the nearest ocean.
