Duluth Minnesota Visitor Guide - Things to Do and See

In our travels around Lake Superior, Duluth has become our favorite Lake Superior "Big Town."

Good snow accumulations along the North Shore bodes well for the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon. The main race is a 3 day run that is a qualifier for the Alaskan Iditerod. Many festive activities in Duluth in the days leading up to the race start.

Few travelers to Duluth Superior Twin Ports can miss the Aerial Lift bridge (pictured above - center right). This Duluth landmark separates Canal Park from Minnesota Point - the spit of land (actually an island) that runs east of the bridge. This picture was taken from Enger Tower rising from the top of the 600 ft high bluff that runs for several miles along this edge of Lake Superior. In addition to scenic vistas, a beautiful lakefront, neat restaurants and shopping, Duluth parks offers some great outdoor recreation.

There are several waterfalls in and around Duluth that are most impressive in the spring of the year. More dramatic waterfalls can be found if you travel a little further up the Minnesota North Shore.
