Duluth"s beach!

You get BOTH "up north" and "southern tropical" around here! If you love the beach it's just a quick trip across the bridge to Park Point. Such variety

Nice beach a little away from town across the lift bridge. Hard to get over the big sand dune to the beach, but worth it once you see the view. Swimming is good if it's nots real windy.

A must visit to enjoy the lovely beach in Minnesota. When we visited, it was sparsely crowded. Kept my 3 year old entertained.

This beach are has limited parking, but was walkable from our hotel. Frankly, I think all of Duluth is a great walking city in nice weather. The beach is all the lovely Lake Superior stone and a bit of grainy sand. I live in a beautiful beach town, and this was a nice change. Lake Superior is so large you... More

Park Point is a real beach on the shore of Lake Superior. There is swimming with lifeguards or just miles of beach over the berm. We went out there to cool off a couple of weeks ago and enjoyed a swim in the lake.

Park Point is a nice place to spend time on a quiet beach, with great views of Lake Superior. Watch the big ships, or just toss stones in the lake. It's a fun place to visit.

We loved this out-of-way beach. It was hot the day we visited yet this beach area was not crowded. Water was a bit chilly (I hear it usually is) but still fun to play in. The kids could wade out quite a bit before it got too deep. Lots of beach area to play in or explore. Parking was close... More

Great View of Duluth From a Different Vantage Point. It gives you an entirely different perspective of the city. It's also fun to actually be on a "beach" with waves that feel like the ocean.

We took a drive from Minneapolis and enjoyed our time on the beach here with our dog. Water was too cold for us but our pooch liked it!!

Just over the Duluth Lift Bridge, Park Point offers a lovely sand beach (which is hard to find on the north shore). My kids really enjoy playing in the sand and swimming in the lake here. However, parking is VERY limited, and there are no facilities for restrooms or changing. Pack well, and bring a towel to wipe off all... More
