Fun place to spend some time walking along the waterfront and people watching. It's nice when it's cold too. Peaceful and beautiful if you can dress warm enough!

Canal Park is a great place to shop and dine, as well as enjoy the busy Duluth harbor. Be sure to visit the Corp of Engineers museum building located by the lift bridge to see fascinating displays and information about the harbor and Lake Superior.

There are lots of shops as well - everything from tourist shops, to candy stores. to boutiques, to the famous Duluth Pack store. Then there are the activities - the lake walk, the lift bridge, the maritime museum, etc. The city keeps the... More

We really enjoyed the walking, the historic markers, the shops and the restaurants. There are wonderful memorials and they do a great job with the flowers and plantings for the summer. It is a beautiful spot - well worth spending lots of time! Friendly for families, kids, animals .... and it also feels perfectly safe for a woman walking alone!

After coming with my aunt and mom, had to bring my husband. I knew he would love watching the ships, and he did. Make sure you go across the bridge to what is now a separate island for some beach access and different views. Fun to cross the bridge, too.
