“Must see in Duluth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

We visit Duluth often but never tire of the harbor area. The bridge is one of a kind??
Fun to walk over to the other side as well. People run to see the bridge rise and ships enter the port.

“so cool!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Really fun experience... we watched a boat go under, and the bridge go up/down. Just don't get stuck waiting to cross the bridge when it is going up! it takes a while to go down!

“Awesome Contraption”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

This thing is way neat. Not a draw bridge but the whole roadway is lifted straight up like an elevator to let the sea going freightors throug to the bay.

Cool to see these big ships go by so close and think about where they have been and where they are going.
