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.

Nice place to get out and stretch your legs. If you're wanting to do more than walk there are bike rentals that seat the whole family. Plenty of shops and food as well as places to sit and just enjoy the weather. There are benches along the canal where you can sit and watch ships come into the harbor. It's... More

Our family visits Duluth once or twice a year. Regardless of the weather, we head to Canal Park. We like to visit the maritime museum, watch the lift bridge go up, head out to the light house, visit the local shops! It is a great place to people watch! Always a fun time!

Nice waterfront area where you can park your car and stroll around or rent bikes. An ideal place to bring kids. We followed the "Lakewalk" -- a paved walking path which took us along the west end of Lake Superior (where we stopped to skip rocks), past the nice (and did I mention free?) maritime museum, underneath the famous lift...

Better in the summer, but plenty to do year round. Shops, restaurants, the aquarium, the DECC, a brewery. Nice place to come relax anytime.

It's a Saturday night and I headed over to the Canal Park brewery. When there was a wait for a table, I was pleasantly surprised to grab a stool at the bar. Upbeat crowd and friendly staff that made we feel very comfortable and I'm not one that dines out much on my own. The staff was all very prompt... More

Don't miss Amazing Grace cafe in De Sitz Weitz Market Place. On Sunday nights at 6pm young local musicians can come and showcase their talent on a stage for the first time. There is some fabulous undiscovered talent in Duluth. Afterwards the old pros have a jam session and there is an amazing atosphere in the cafe and it is... More

The best hotels and some great shops and restaurants are all in Canal Park. You can also let your kids watch ships pass through the canal and let them throw rocks in the water. The museum here is fun (and free) too.

We took friends and their kids to Canal park, walked the frozen shore and then went to the Dewitt-Seitz Market place to shop and snack.
