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.

They renovated a rundown waterfront historic area into a great tourist destination. Many stores ,restaurants, and attractions within walking distance. I recommend staying at South Pier Inn by the aerial lift bridge and walking. Canal Park is safe and has a lot of things to see within walking distance. Also a good base of operations to visit the North Shore and other areas.

My one suggestions to the business association there is to go together and put quality musicians or other entertainers on the payroll and have them performing outside in the summer on a regular basis;...at a bandstand, walking or whatever works best. I don't see how the investment wouldn't pay off?

Canal Park is a happening place! Lots of shops and unique restaurants. It is fun to walk toward the lighthouse and feed the seagulls!

There was a charter cruise going past, and the captain came out and yelled to the kids, "bet you cant beat us to the end!" and all the kids had a great time racing to the end of the walk... The lighthouse was really cool, and parking was cheap at $2for 2 hours.

The city of Duluth has done a great job crating a space that invites you to stroll outdoors and enjoy the shops and beaty of the lake
