Driving along the parkway you can see Duluth from above. Fall colors are beautiful. It is fun to imagine people taking horse drawn carriage rides along it in the past.

This roadway extends along the ridge above Duluth, and affords views of the lake and forested hills. We visited in mid-Autumn, and the leaves were a riot of color. Worth the drive.

Go on a sunny day and have your camera ready. A few turnouts for you to park and get some fantastic views of lake and city.

A beautiful plus, in Duluth. Old, old legends are about the lands and waters created by Great Spirits. As you drive along the Parkway, as you climb or descend, take a look at what Man (mankind) can never create! Viewing a Sunrise or Sunset can...More

What we were able to see was nice, interesting old neighborhoods, views of Lake Superior, and the harbors in Duluth, MN and Superior, WI. The NE section of the scenic drive is on city streets with limited opportunities to park to take photos, but worth...More
