Attraction details
Owner description: Watch seagulls soaring while you stroll around this popular spot, part of the revived Duluth waterfront. Nearby are a sculpture garden, jazz clubs, coffee shops, motels and restaurants. If you like ships, stand on the pier and watch huge boats and ships, some from around the world, come and go daily.

“Enjoyable!”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

When traveling to Duluth, most of the activities somehow center around Canal Park. You can get a hotel right on the water and walk to the restaurants and shops.
The Maritime Museum right on the canal offers a great history of the area as well as the ship schedules. Its a great place to be when the ships are coming through the canal.
Having said that, don't miss other things Duluth has to offer. Many people travel to Duluth and never leave Canal Park.

“Watch the Ore Boats”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

If you are visiting Duluth this is a must stop Park. It is right down in the port. You can visit the Arial Lift Bridge and in shipping season watch the ore boats coming and going. Dine a Grandma's the carb up place and finish line for Grandma's Marathon. Lot's of shopping in the area as well as places to stay. Watching a winter storm from there is quite an experience as well. Especially if it is blowing ice in off the lake.

“Great place to get away from the summer heat.”
Reviewed March 7, 2012

Hey, it's ALWAYS cooler by the Lake, so when the weather heats up, we head to Lake Superior, stop and eat here.
