Travel Tips for Duluth

by kc0ltv

If you're visiting the city, I highly recommend going down to the Canal Park area (where most tourists hang out) or somewhere where tourists are welcome on the lakeside. It's an interesting experience watching the ships come in and out. The advertised-as-scenic Skyline Pkwy. up on the hill is a good spot to watch things from a bit of a perspective, bicycle, or drive.

Take a walk along the Lakewalk!! Start at Canal Park & walk until you get to the famous, Portland Malt Shop. It is the best!! Its this LITTLE brick building & all they sell is ice cream cones or malts, but they are GOOD!! They just hit the spot. Then on the way back to Canal Park you can eat your malt, or HUGE ice cream cone!

Being part of Minnesota, Duluth has plenty of upper midwestern culture. Ever seen the movie Fargo? It isn't nearly as extreme (many of the words used are restricted to small towns or are obselete and only used in the older crowd), but it provides a rough yet exaggerated idea of the local culture. Minnesotans are well-mannered kind, reserved, perhaps a little dull on the outside(as in boring) people who will always help you. Fishing (and deer hunting) are very popular around here.

Grand Portage National Monument

by Toughluck

One of the oldest recorded trading centers in Minnesota. Continuously inhabited by the Ojibwa peoples (now referred to as the Chippewa), Grand Portage National Monument and the community of Grand Portage preserve the heritage of the Native Americans and the European fur traders that came to this area in the 1700's.

It's 160 miles (256 km) from Duluth and takes about 3 1/2 hours each way.

Split Rock Lighthouse!

by NateWill22

About 20 mins north of Gooseberry Falls is another famous landmark: the Split Rock Lighthouse. Unlike the falls, there is an admission price to get onto the grounds. Instead of paying to take the guided tour ($6 a person) we paid the 'per-vehicle' rate ($7) and drove to the beach below for a beautiful view of the lighthouse and the lake! That's my insight suggestion.... it was really neat!
