There is so much to do near the Aerial Lift Bridge and in Canal Park! There are a ton of fabulous restaurants, shops, and attractions here. Right next to the Lift Bridge is an interesting and informative Maritime Museum, which is free and open to the public. The Northern Waters Smokehaus, as seen on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives, is located in the DeWitt-Seitz Building, along with other great restaurants such as the Amazing Grace Bakery/Cafe in the basement. You can frequently see enormous ships - some coming all the way from the Atlantic Ocean passing through Canal Park's two piers and under the iconic Aerial Lift Bridge. Live music abounds in many of these restaurants at night, and the famous Grandma's Bar & Saloon - sponsor of the world renowned Grandma's Marathon - has a bar that is popular with night life loving youth above the main restaurant. Find local artists works in one of the many galleries in the area. And when you're done, there are a variety of hotels right on The Loop where you can rest your head for the night.
