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.

“Lovely little enclave for tourists”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Canal Park is a charming little self-contained area on the Duluth waterfront. There are lots of interesting shops and good restaurants, both chains (ho hum) and quirky but excellent local places. I highly recommend staying in one of the hotels in Canal Park, for the convenience and pleasure of being able to walk and enjoy the various restaurants and shops...or simply the views from the adjacent Lake Walk area.

“Just a great place to visit”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Watch the big ships pass through the lift bridge, visit the great shops, eat some of the treats available, or, if the weather is nice, enjoy an outside bistro!
