Canal Park is a great place to start the evening off right. There are plenty of lake front walks, attractions along the lake, and restaurants to choose from. We saw two ships to port, enjoyed a walk along the lakefront, and took in the cool spring breeze off Lake Superior. You will have to pay fro parking if you want... More

Canal park is a lot of fun. Plenty of shops and restaurants to venture in to. You can also rent bikes for the lake walk or take a carriage ride. We were lucky and stayed near so we didnt have to worry about parking.

Beautiful!! Lot to see and do, parking is limited in the busy summer and especially during events. Then it's best to park across the bridge and walk, which is probably why you're there anyway.

Canal park has several great hotels, a range of good restaurants, ranging from fast food, "natural food," local gems, and fine dining, and wonderful sights: sunrise and sunset over Lake Superior, international boats coming and going through the Aerial Bridge, and the wonderful lake walk. There are also open squares with water spouts, people watching galore, and open terrace patio... More

We stayed in a hotel in canal park and enjoyed the entire time there. The morning sunrises over the lake, the lake walk morning and evening and the activities during the days. It was a great time of observing families, couple and singles enjoying the sites and sounds of the big water and draw of the boats coming to harbor... More

Walk down the Lake Walk, sit on the beach and watch the kids throw rocks in the water, visit the museum, eat at a restaurant and visit the quaint shops. We visit here every time we are in Duluth.

Nothing to dislike. You have a nice museum, lots of food, and get a chance to see 1000' boats coming in and out. Duluth has really fixed up the lakeshore. Go and plan on spending a few hours at least.

Beautiful place in a small town of Duluth. Very clean and safe. I was lucky to be able to see the ship that afternoon. It is just an amazing place.
