Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Weather is usually much cooler in Duluth nomatter what the season. During my last visit, temps at night (Mid July 2004) were dropping into the low 40s. You'll want a mix of cooler and warmer weather gear as the weather changes abruptly.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Summers in Minnesota can be brutally warm, HOWEVER, when spending any time on Lake Superior, there is no garuntee of warmth. Always bring something warm to wear because you are likely to encounter a cool night or a cold rainy day in Duluth.
If you're here anytime other than from about June through August, be sure to bring some warm weather gear. It's cold up here!
Photo Equipment: Duluth and the surrounding area provide some great photo opportunities so bring your camera.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: There is ample opportunity for camping and hiking, so come prepared and be sure to book well in advance.
Make sure to bring a coat, even in the summer as when the wind comes of the lake it can get chilly. But be sure to bring along summer clothes too because if you go to Miller Hill it can be 20 degrees warmer up there!
Photo Equipment: Make sure to bring your camera as Duluth is such a beautiful city and there are many photo opportunities awaiting!
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: There are numerous campgrounds aroung the area including the state parks. There are very few beaches for swimming in the immediate Duluth vicinity but a lot of the motels do have pools. They say it is safe to swim in Lake Superior at Park Point in July but otherwise the water is way too cold. And there is a great beach on Park Point too.
Miscellaneous: Most importantly, remember to bring a little of everything on your trip to Duluth.
