Walking from shop to shop eating at several great restruants. Sit down and have a beeratCanal Park Brewing Co. Biking ridding on the boardwalk. So many things to do!!

“Lots to do and very clean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We always like walking the shops and seeing the sights in canal park. It is very clean and well maintained and we always feel safe there. I have never been there in the summer when it is packed so don’t know how crazy it gets. But in the off season it is really a delight to visit.

“Lots of fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Looooove canal park! Love watching the big ore boats and all the people watching the boats! Love throwing rocks in the water and wading in the water. My kids love to ride the trolley (50 cents a person...cheap entertainment). There are so many little shops there that i have yet to visit everyone. There are many restaurants with great decks and patios. There are water fountains for kids to play in. I cant think of one thing i dont like about canal park...perhaps too many seagulls! Wear comfy shoes and be prepared for any type of weather and temps.

Things to do:
Lake walk
Shops
Restaurants
Maritime museum
Tour the large ore boat (willam irving)
Walk to end of peer/watch boats come in/watch lift bridge
People watch
Throw rocks in the lake
Trolley ride
Carriage rides
Rent bikes and bike ride
Fountains

“NICE area!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Beautiful area to sit by the lake, watch various vessels (boats!) go by and through the lift bridge! We also enjoyed the museum and walking through the Canal Park area. Fun to see the horse drawn carriages and simply people enjoying their day! Lots of little places to shop and eat! This area has something for everyone!

“Beautiful, entertaining area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Duluth has done well by making this area into a nice tourist spot. Neat shops, restaurants, museums, and other attractions. This is the area that is a must-see on a visit to Duluth. We found adequate parking and well-placed benches, too.
