Fun to watch the ships go under the bridge. Great to drive accross the bridge and check out the the beautiful homes and beaches and picnic areas.

“Duluth trip-summer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We have a group of 4 traveling to Duluth from Kansas City this summer. June/July. We are hitting up the Mall of America for probably one day and then 4 or 5 days in Duluth. We are interested in the aerial bridge, fishing and sight seeing. We might camp part of the time. Any ideas for an itenerary? I am so excited about this trip. I have never traveled anywhere north!

“Sweet bridge, especially when it rises to let ships through!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

My girlfriend and I got to see a huge ship go through the bridge....it lifts super high and boy does it get loud! Still nice bridge to walk over and look at , but the big ticket is when ships come by! Plenty restaurants near by and walking paths and vintage pieces to view.

“Amazing views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I grew up near this location and it's one of my favorite places in the world. I love to walk the entire path under the bridge back toward the DECC. Great for families, romantic walks, no matter who you're with, it's a great idea to visit this place.
