“One of only two in the world...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Really cool engineering, fun to watch the way it lifts. There is kind of a San Francisco vibe to the area Engen though you are in the heart of the upper Midwest.

“Canal park lift bridge is awsome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

We went to the canal park to watch the bridge go up and enjoyed so much to do that we will be going back tomorrow. Free to see this attraction and lots of other things to do too.

“Interesting Bridge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Cool watching the bridge in action, especially when the big ships come through. Giant concrete slabs counter-weight the bridge on either end.

“Pretty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

The bridge is probably more fun to look at than it is to drive across. But it is a pretty area. Enjoy!

“Watching ships arrive in Duluth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Watching foreign ships from the pier near the Aerial Bridge is always exciting. A trip inside the Marine Museum is very educational.
