Really enjoyed this area. The boardwalk was great to walk around after our meal and check out the lake scenery. Seemed like there were a ton of restaurants and cute shops to poke around in if we would have had more time.

If your looking for a sight to see, canal park is the place to be. Go down by the lake, explore the aerial lift bridge, explore the marine museum, good restaurants in the area, and just a good spot to relax.

Canal Park area is the perfect place to hangout in Duluth, especially on a nice spring/summer/fall day. Great shopping at countless art and clothing stores, fun little coffee shops, good pubs, not to mention beautiful views of the lake and bridge.

This park offers lots to see including the Aerial Bridge Lift, LakeWalk, the many restaurants in the areas and the light houses and beaches. I would go here again because it was very peaceful. Parking sucks though!

Nice shops, old buildings and a lovely ambient. The chocolate shop is the highlight of this place. We enjoyed the sculpture pond right across from one of the hotels.

This was a fun way to shop around and it was very neat, but I personally thought there was too much antique shops and too much traffic.

Like a favorite jacket or cozy sweater Canal Park is always so comfortable it feels like an old friend. We have traveled to Canal Park twice a year for 42 years and the whole area feels very welcoming ! Love the shops and Seitz Marketplace. I love it here...

Canal Park has to be one of my favorite parts of town. When you cross over the Aerial Lift Bridge you drive down a beautiful neighborhood until you get to Canal Park park area. In the park area - you can go over the beach side to sit over looking Lake Superior. People actually do lay on the beach in... More

Whether you are coming into Canal to dine (Grizzlys is my favorite!), to do some very unique shopping or go out for an evening.. Canal Park has something for everyone! Parking is MUCH better than it used to be, but If you are having an issue, park in Downtown Duluth (which now is an extension of Canal Park for shopping... More
