Nice park with shops and places to walk around. The obvious centerpiece is the lift bridge that towers above and the ships that pass by.

Plenty of dining options for everyone including Grandmas restaurant!! Will... More

The Canal is cool but there isn't a ton to do at the Canal itself. It is close to many cool things so there's a good chance something fun will start or end here. You'll pay for parking.

Had a great time walking the shoreline, reading the history, and shopping. The Lodge hotel was very nice and Bentleyville was festive and fun, including ice skating!

We love the Canal Park area. The area has everything you would want. Beautiful scenery with Lake Superior, Aerial lift bridge, Boardwalk and all the shops and restaurants a person would want.

What a fantastic array of shops and eateries! Something for everyone, all budgets and all ages. We loved the "chocolate" store, as the kids called it, and all the shops in the Dewitt Seitz building. We have been here in every season and always have a great time.

Our whole family loves Canal Park. We all have our favorite places to visit. There has been turn a rounds, so some of our favorites (Monkey Business for one) is not there anymore. The employees are all nice and friendly. It has something for everyone!
