Many cities try to attract tourist money when they boast of endless possibilities, but in Duluth the possibilities truly are endless. A day could well be spent with many regional activities. These are only a few of the favorably reviewed destinations among tourists.

Minnesota defines Split Rock Lighthouse as a state historical monument. The state erected the lighthouse in 1910 after a tragic series of 1905 shipwrecks into the craggy cliffside.

The keeper's dwelling, lighthouse, and fog signal building have remained in tact since the 1920 restoration. Tour the ongoing exhibits and museum store.

Gooseberry Falls State Park is a natural recreation area. A three-tiered waterfall plummets into a deep river gorge. It also includes a misty forest and ancient, petrified shoreline lava flow.

Visitors with less than a couple days on their hands should consider the North Shore Scenic Drive. It connects a system of 8 state parks that lead to the Canadian border. The drive arguably offers some of the most prolific views of lighthouses, lush forests, and cliffs.

After the scenic drive, a traveler may be curious to know what lies across the Lake Superior Sound. A visit to the Apostle Islands can partially satisfy the mystery. These 22 pristine islands lie off the coast of Northwest Wisconsin. Sea caves and sandstone cliff formations seamlessly appear from the green canopies. Ferries frequently leave from Bayfield or the adventurous may kayak across the Lake.
