I travel this road frequently and live very close, and actually lived on it before I got married. You can see the Ships coming or going, a nightly view is beautiful. You have a wonderful view of the famous bridge, without having to venture into the canal area. I love the view from my home--- doesn't cover all the city... More

What should of been a highlight of our visit quickly degenerated into a farce ! The first couple of signposts with the seagull (?) all of a sudden disappeared ?? What was supposed to be a pleasant 25 mile leisurely sight seeing drive went pear shaped when the signs went AWOL !! Now I've driven & safely navigated London, Paris... More

Saw cars driving up and down that hill, and knew we needed to check it out for ourselves. It was worth it!

Anyone who visits the lovely town of Duluth will see for themselves how beautiful the view is from the Skyline Parkway. You can drive this route any time of the year and you won't be disappointed either!

This drive is a beautiful way to enter Duluth. It lies directly off the I 35 and affords one beautiful views of Duluth harbor from easy to navigate parking areas along the highway. The Thompson Rest Area has an extensive travel information center to enhance your North Shore experience.

When one lives in an area you often take things for granted, but the Skyline Parkway is always a great drive anytime of the year to realize why I live in Duluth. From the beginning at SW of Spirit Mt through the city to Old Hwy 61 there is so much to see and enjoy. Is a must drive when... More

The Skyline Parkway provides some of the best views of Duluth and the lake and is readily accessible. We traveled about 6-8 miles of the total 26 and would have liked to have seen it all.

If you miss the ocean you can drive up here and watch the waves. I was surprised at how big they actually were. It reminded me of being on a mountain watching the waves over the Atlantic (maybe not quite a mountain) This will definitely give you your ocean fix until you can get to the real thing.

This drive gives you the opportunity to get an absolutely gorgeous view of the lake and part of the city of Duluth. It's an easy drive although it's busy since it's a main thoroughfare.
