We were walking around Canal Park and noticed a boat approaching the bridge so wondered over in the direction. It was very interesting to see how this bridge operated.

Just one more reason to go to Duluth; just head down to Park Point and enjoy the shopping, eateries, rent a bike, go for a carriage ride. . .and hopefully you'll get lucky enough to see a big ship sail into the Port of Duluth. It's an amazing place, even if the boats don't arrive. A schedule is posted so you can hopefully time your visit. There is always something to do, especially just sitting and enjoying the view. There is some free parking on the street, otherwise paid lots. Wheelchair accessible, areas for kids to run around and feed the pigeons. There are a lot of festivals in the immediate area; all within walking distance.

There are a few restaurants and bars right beside the bridge. There's also access to lighthouse and the shoreline so it's a very cool area. Family friendly.

This is a Duluth land mark and must see. We have driven over it several times but this trip we did not. You don't have to hang around very long to see it go up and that is pretty cool. Great stop and must see in Duluth!

It's fun to see and there's a nice park by it also. I'm sure kids would really enjoy it. It's a nice walk along the shore line.
