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.

Wow!!

Canal Park has so much to do and see that you can't take it all in in one day. It's a must see for all ages.

It's always a pleasure to tour Canal Park and all the shops. We come here every time we come to Duluth. Thankful for the large public parking lot, we can walk to everywhere from there. Many great places to shop, dine and rest. Like the new benches by the canal itself.

This is such a beautiful place to walk or just sit and enjoy the view! We thoroughly enjoyed the three lighthouses, aeriel lift bridge one can walk on, and the maritime museum, which was free, and very informative.

We did not stay in Canal Park. We stayed about a mile north. But we came and visited it each day. It has lots of shops and restaurants to choose from and keep you busy most of the day. Fun to go walk around, but a bit too "busy" for us, so we are glad we were able to go... More

We stayed at the Canal Park lodge (very nice) - this was our first visit to Duluth. The Canal Park area was beautiful - lots of walking paths. We plan to come again.

Great shops, many good places to eat ( all price ranges ). See the ship cannel and the GREAT LAKES MARITIME VISITORS CENTER. The city of Duluth has really done a great job with the improvements. I have been coming to Duluth since 1960 and the whole city has been revitalized. CANNEL ST is there GEM.

This was not my first time in Duluth but it was my first time visiting the Canal Park area. There is plenty to do in the area-shops, restaurants, or just enjoying a walk. Hope to go back and maybe see some boats come in next time.

Want to gaze at beautiful lake Superior, watch sailboats and commercial ships make their way into the harbor, have a myriad of choices for dining, experience fabulous shopping at artsy shops, take a quiet walk along the beach or join the crowd on Canal Park drive? It's all in Canal Park. There is plenty to do for any age or... More
