“Sandy beach dunes in Minnesota town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

When you walk up the slope & down the path to the beach, you will feel the lake breeze & hear the lapping of the waves. It's like no where else around. Birding is excellent. There is a nice hiking trail past the airport -- but be wary of poison ivy.

“nice beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We really liked the beach and little playground. We didn't walk on the nature trail, but we did walk along the beach and found a geocache. Really beautiful spot.

“Birds, ships and people....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

While the kids love the sea gulls and people feed them non-stop, I am less inclined to want to share my space with so many birds. Very clean and entertaining time while we were there, though. Watching the people and the ships and boats is lots of fun. Lake Superior speaks for itself.

“Sandy beach in Duluth? Yes!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

On a hot Duluth day you'd almost think you are "sunning" on an ocean beach. It's a large sandy beach just over the Aerial Lift Bridge...a nice break when canal park gets busy

“Great Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Consider walking the sandy beach of Park Point to get away from the 'hustle and bustle' of more touristy things in Duluth. 'Bring your binoculars for long distance viewing. A telephoto lens is a must for great pictures. Early morning and late afternoons are best for pictures.
