“Absolute first stop when visiting Duluth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I have made many trips over the years from Iowa to Duluth, and Thompson Hill is always a must-stop. Great place for scenic views, a stretch, clean restroom, and load up on information on current happenings in Duluth and area. That first real good view of "the Lake" is almost an emotional experience!

“Unexpected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

I made the decision at the last minute to stop here after reading another review. Great views of Duluth and the harbor and a perfect place to get out and stretch your legs before driving on. The grounds are kept up very well and the building is very nice and CLEAN bathrooms. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Maps, brochures, coloring books and coupon books are available!

“Nicest info. Center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Seriously very well laid out & informative. The workers there couldn't have been more friendly & helpful, readily handing us brochures & coupons as we inquired about things.If nothing else stop for some incredible views & pic.s or a picnic!

“Saved us time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

By stopping here we discovered where the Skyline Highway was closed and it saved us a lot of back tracking. The guide also offered suggestions as to the best way for us to go to out next destination Mackinaw City. Very knowledgeable and the materials he offered were right on the mark. This is so far ahead of other information centers we have visited often staffed with nice people but not so knowledgeable. Excellent visit. By comparing Trip Advisor top attractions with the local Information Center we were able to select the best for our interests.

“Make this your first stop for sure!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Spectacular view with a super info center. Get all your sight seeing info here - nice, knowledgable staff. Be sure to get the coupon book - good for a ton of places. Signs to get there seem confusing but keep going. It's at the top of a big hill - hence the name!
