Canal park is a treasure that any traveler to Duluth should visit. Popular with locals and tourists, Canal Park offers a variety of things to do, sights to see and places to eat. I recommend a carriage ride, shopping at Dewitt-Sitez and Duluth Pack Store.

We love canal park and visit frequently! We always stop at the popcorn trolley for popcorn and cherry shaved ice. Won't be going back there ever again. Today while visiting my son fell and hit is eye on the propeller outside the trolley. I quickly ran up to get some ice from the vendor and "Megan" says to me we... More

Liked everything. Great walking, shops, places to eat. Did walk Superior Street as well and ended up at Fitgers. Awesome as I was looking for a shop-Lotus on the Lake and my husband a place to have a cocktail. Worked for both of us!

The scenery was wonderful by the lake. We were able to take our time and walk the lake front. The weather was gorgeous too while we were there.

On our way through Duluth, we decided to stop by Canal Park. It was a pretty afternoon, and it did not disappoint. The Harbor area park had benches to sit, some nice views, including looking uphill into the city. As our luck had it, we also got to see a huge barge making its way along the canal beneath the...

Too busy for us really, but we stayed across the canal where it was quieter and we could get away from most of the bustle. Lots of eateries and things to do.

Great spot to walk for couples and families. Lots to do, including food carts, restaurants, and the museum. Look at the shipping schedule to see when the ore boats are arriving and departing.

We go to Duluth once each summer and I suppose it maybe too much. We walk the canal do more window shopping and have an average meal. We come to see the lake as well, however, the shops and items are the same as we have experience each year. We get excited prior to going to Duluth, however once we... More
