The guide was very knowledgeable about Duluth history and the tour included a ticket to the beautiful Glensheen mansion and a ticket to tour the William A Irvin -- both super fun!

Chilly Dogs Sled Dog Trips Ely
We chose the 3 hour afternoon trip which includes educational orientation, an 8 mile ride in which you may experience both mushing and sled riding, and hot chocolate and goodies and downloading at the end.
Meeting the dogs, learning about dog sledding and then getting to physically experience both mushing and riding in the sled will be hands down one of your top fun things you will have done in your lifetime!

Garvin Heights Winona
Winona offers better areas for a picnic, but the view from Garvin is spectacular...you can see Wisconsin, down to Trempealeau, and most of Winona is laid out for you.
We liked the early morning view as the east rising sun lit up the valley and enhanced the colors of the trees.

My husband and I were looking for an outdoor activity to do with my parents who are in their middle 70's so we thought an 8-mile kayaking trip down the Mighty Mississippi would be just the right thing...and it was!
I would highly recommend this outfitter and float trip to anyone!!!
Skyline Parkway Duluth
Take your time, stop at numerous scenic overlooks, cross seven bridges road for spectacular views, and very scenic park settings and starts to numerous hiking trails if that's your thing too.
Amazing views of the lake and takes some navigational skills to stay on the parkway but worth the time.
