This is an amazing drive on top of Duluth! There are several places to stop and enjoy the view along the way. It is worth taking this drive whether you are local, or are visiting from out of town.

One of the many "gems" Duluth has to offer tourists as well as residents of our beautiful city. Each season reveals a different sight to behold. By far, my favorite season is the fall when the colorful leaves against the beautiful blue of Lake Superior provides you with sensory overload! Along Skyline Parkway, not only will you enjoy pulling off... More

This "road trip" can be considered a success whether you have an hour or an entire day. This road use to be the shoreline for the glacial Lake Superior. That is such an impressive thought as you overlook the City and countryside. Certainly makes one pause. This is an excellent daytime trip or on a clear night the views are... More

I took a friend along the lengthy of Skyline to show the great views of the harbor and Lake Superior. There are little parking areas or wide shoulders that allow a pause to take in the views. There isn't a better place to view all there is to see about the Twin Ports.

This is a beautiful drive and well worth your time. The route can be a little tricky to follow. We had to make several corrections to get back on the correct route. The leaves were just starting to turn in mid September. Many spots to pull over and take pictures. Some people do drive too fast on this road, but... More

While the views here are awesome, people drive like idiots and there always seems to be someone going way too fast on this road. There's a mix of bikers, runners, picture takers and cars and not a lot of extra room on the road. This makes for what I feel is a dangerous mix. If you can secure one of... More

We drove on the eastern part of the Skyline Parkway and could not follow it very well and the roads were not very well maintained. It winds around the hillside of Duluth and it is hard to figure out if you are still on the parkway or not. There wasn't much of a view either. We did not go on... More

any season is great to see the skyline but Fall is the best one for me, awesome to see, try to stay on the island on the other side of the aerial bridge, a balcony room for example at park point inn on the marina offers a great view of the landscape.... the skyline is beautiful, watch the fog roll...
