Folks that work in Canal Park describe the summertime atmosphere as akin to that of Disney World. There is music playing, everyone is happy, and there is fun all around. Food fun, drink fun, lake fun, boat fun, and even more drink fun. At least stop down and take in some of the sights and have a meal and a... More

Canal Park is perfect for first time and long time visitors. The area is very clean and safe. The City and Police obviously keep the riff raff to the north on Superior street. We've been coming here for years and never, ever had any issues. Parking can be tight in high season, but off season it is wonderful. There is... More

Beautiful walk along the lake, nice wooden trail to follow. Can be brisk by the water. Nice restaurants nearby as well as tourist spots for souveniers.

Love going to the shops and going to see the lake. Fun skipping rocks with the kids. Loved the new adventure zone that was lots of fun. Would do it again in two months.

We were fortunate to hit this area on an "off" day so few crowds. Very interesting shops, much out of the ordinary. Many places to dine and shop. A must see!

This area is great. There are many restaurants and different kinds of shops. It is great to walk along the boardwalk next to the lake or watch a ship pass under the lift bridge. We saw a ship pass in the morning while it was still dark. That was really a sight to see. The bike rental place was closed... More

By late Fall it is quite deserted and a nice drive if you happen to have the time while visiting Duluth

Hard to find parking and hard to get around. Crowded and tourists. Overpriced restaurants. If you want to see the lake, go a bit farther north to one of the parks. Frustrating. There is a museum and bridge that is worth seeing.
