“You MUST stop here first”

Thompson Hill Information Center
Ranked #20 of 95 things to do in Duluth
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Stop here for all the info you need about attractions in Duluth. There's free literature of all kinds and the people at the information desk are beyond helpful. We wanted to do Skyline Drive and the desk person was able to tell us about detours because of flood damage and a raptor migration that was currently happening. We got exact directions to all the places we wanted to go. They also have general Minnesota travel information about things like bike trails, state parks and such. The view from the observation deck is well worth a stop in itself.

I have made many trips over the years from Iowa to Duluth, and Thompson Hill is always a must-stop. Great place for scenic views, a stretch, clean restroom, and load up on information on current happenings in Duluth and area. That first real good view of "the Lake" is almost an emotional experience!

I made the decision at the last minute to stop here after reading another review. Great views of Duluth and the harbor and a perfect place to get out and stretch your legs before driving on. The grounds are kept up very well and the building is very nice and CLEAN bathrooms. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Maps, brochures, coloring books and coupon books are available!

By stopping here we discovered where the Skyline Highway was closed and it saved us a lot of back tracking. The guide also offered suggestions as to the best way for us to go to out next destination Mackinaw City. Very knowledgeable and the materials he offered were right on the mark. This is so far ahead of other information centers we have visited often staffed with nice people but not so knowledgeable. Excellent visit. By comparing Trip Advisor top attractions with the local Information Center we were able to select the best for our interests.
