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.

Favorite place to stay, eat, shop, explore Duluth

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.

Canal park has it all. Dining, hotels, shopping and scenic views. No matter what you like to do, you can probably find something to enjoy in this little stretch of Duluth. There isn't much you can't find, see or do to spend an afternoon or an evening. Great place to sip a cup of coffee and watch the sun come... More

Something fun about Canal Park. We go there every year, and never get tired of it. Try it and you'll do it again. I guarantee.

The views of Lake Superior are great from the Lakewalk and the lighthouse pier. The walk was even clear in late January. There are many restaurants and fun shops in Canal Park too. It is easily walkable. Park your car and enjoy.

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!
