We watched the Fire Works from the Parkway on the 4th! What a great view of Duluth, Canal Park, Ariel Lift Bridge and Harbor.

We drove the skyline parkway in the evening after traffic had settled. It was a beautiful coastline view for most of the way. Very similar from most look-out points.

Well worth the drive. Plan on stopping at the overlooks as the view is interesting and beautiful. It is the next best thing to being in an airplane to view the harbor!

The Skyline Drive can take less than an hour, or maybe way more depending on how long you sit at the viewpoints and watch the vista below. We sat for a long time watching a huge ship move toward the lift bridge, although we could not find a good place to actually see it go through. Stop at Enger Tower... More

Driving skyline drive in the fall is a tradition for my husband and I. We make coffee, start at the west end and enjoy the gorgeous lead colors and views of the St Louis River and the lake.

For 50 years the Skyline Parkway has always been a favorite. The Northeast end with Hawks' Ridge and Seven Bridges Road stand out as the best recent upgrades. Duluth is a fabulous outdoor city and the Skyline Parkway tops it off nicely.

I enjoyed this thoroughly! the views are great and the roads take you north/east through residential areas, city areas, over bridges, by waterfalls, and way up high on the cliff where you can see hawks and other migrating birds. If you go south/west from yown, you look down on the iron ore, and grain loading areas of the harbor. That's... More
