Watch seagulls soaring while you stroll around this popular spot, part of the revived Duluth waterfront. Nearby are a sculpture garden, jazz clubs, coffee shops, motels and restaurants. If you like ships, stand on the pier and watch huge boats and ships, some from around the world, come and go daily.

Let's see...Shopping check, food check, entertainment check, hotels check...it seems to be all in one area what else can be said. Parking can be a hassle, walking sometimes feels a little dangerous and to get from one point to another takes a while. On my own rant I would love to see the city put some money into parking elsewhere... More

A must go to destination if you are visiting Duluth. From all kinds of different restaurants, shopping, sports, movies it has it all. Watch the big ships enter or leave port, walk on the lake front, options are endless. Parking can be a challenge, be prepared to pay for a spot.

A great place to walk and explore the lakefront. Many shops and good beer and food at the Canal Park Brewery.

When in Duluth, everyone must stop at Canal Park. You can see Lake Superior, watch the lift bridge, see cargo ships coming in and out, walk the pier to the lighthouse, go shopping, eat, or just walk around. There is plenty to do for the entire family all year long.

We discovered a new shop, the Duluth Packing Co., that was recommended to us by our brother, and we found a lot of neat things for our summer trips to Isle Royale. There are also fun restaurants, and interesting shops. I was able to pick up a beautiful handmade pair of Swarski crystal pomegranate earrings at the Siivii Art Shop.... More

My wife and I made a short trip to The Great White North to see the Apostle Islands Ice Caves and spent some time sightseeing in Duluth, Mn. also. We walked around Canal Park for about an hour (after all it was still winter) and really enjoyed the sights and sounds of Duluth from this special vantage. All of the... More

Canal park is wonderful in the winter. The parking was free. We walked out on Lake Superior and took some great pictures of the lift bridge and also walked out to the brick ruins near water front. We crawled inside this icy structure and was amazed by the ice formations inside. We wore snow boots and was able to walk... More

Nicest, quietest hotels in Duluth. Great restaurants to choose from, in a wide range of ethnicity. Unique shops and spas. Views and attractions to capture your attention.
