Owner description: Watch seagulls soaring while you stroll around this popular spot, part of the revived Duluth waterfront. Nearby are a sculpture garden, jazz clubs, coffee shops, motels and restaurants. If you like ships, stand on the pier and watch huge boats and ships, some from around the world, come and go daily.

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

Canal park is one of my fave spots in Duluth! It's a collection of the harbor and lake, lift bridge, maritime museum (which is free, by the way!), lots of shops and restaurants, hotels, etc. It's nice to just walk around. Very touristy. I always bring family and friends here when they visit because there's so much to do in a relatively small area (everything is walking distance...so you park and go for half a day).

“Plenty to do and see in a compact area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Parking is a bit of an expensive adventure but there are plenty of things to do here. You can watch ships navigate the channel under the world famous Aerial Lift Bridge. You can stroll the lakeshore, do all sorts of indoor arcade like things at the Adventure Zone and there are plenty of dining options from food carts to excellent sit down meals. Hotels are a bit pricey but for compactness you can't beat it.

“Great area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

I love canal park, my family visits here every year. There a bunch of shops, places to eat, coffee and hotels. The piers are beautiful, the lift bridge is neat especially when the big boats go through. The kids can play in the water near the big rocks. Its just a great place, a must see stop!

“Lots of touristy diversions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

It is a fun place to waste some time. The trailer selling seafood by the water is fun and the fountains are a great place for kids and dogs to cool off.
