“Great for Teenagers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Safe, easy to walk around and we loved all the antique shops. Lots of cool restaurants, and if you stay right in Canal park, it makes it all the better!

“Canal Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

The Canal gets you right next to our inland ocean. Ships from all over the world pass under the Aerial LIft Bridge and the Marine Museum there is very informative and a great place to find out about boat traffic. The area has new hotels fronting the lake while one block inland are a treasure trove of small shops and fine restaurants.

“My Own Back Yard!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

I live in Duluth. Sometimes we can take for granted the things to which we have easy access. The Canal Park area in Duluth is a great place to walk around and do a little shopping, but because I live here, I know the prices of things are inflated to capture the tourist impulse buying. With that said, I still may make an occasional purchase in any number of the fine shops one may find there. It is a fun place to go. If you enjoy eating, there are a number of fine places in this area of town and for the most part, their prices are not inflated.

You can get to the lake, walk down the canal where the ocean going vessels come and go, find places to eat, see the Arial Lift Bridge, visit the Marine Museum. Candy store, did I mention great places to eat? Antique store
