“A sight to behold”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Watching this aerial lift bridge in operation was very interesting. We were on a harbor tour and our boat went right under it. It gave us an opportunity for some awesome pictures. We also saw it in operation from a walkway right below and that also was very impressive.

“watch iron ore ships come and go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Best place to watch for ships coming and going is from Enger tower, or close up eat at grandmas saloon when the outdoor tables are open.

“Cool view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Fun to watch the ships pass under. The ships come about 3-4 hours. A museum and lookout area is located right next to the bridge.

“Full Moon Over the Lift Bridge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We were lucky to enjoy an amazing full moon over the Ariel Lift Bridge. It truly was eye-candy on this Duluth landmark. Be sure to cross the bridge and take in the beauty of Minnesota Point.
