    A ski chalet in the center of town

    ski chalet? why not

    Nothing new to Europeans who are used to skiing right to their front door if they happen to live in the Alps. But mighty unusual for a major U.S. city to have ski slopes right in the midst of a populated neighborhood. Remember that Duluth is built right into the hillside, so why not put up a chairlift and let citizens have easy access to some downhill fun. Located in Chester Bowl Park.

    Lay on the Beach at Park Point

    Pebble Beach by Split Rock Lighthouse

    Park point is a six mile island connected to Duluth by the Ariel Lift Bridge. The Lakeside is a 7 mile sand beach where you can just lay and relax, join in on a game of volleyball or take a wade in Lake Superior. Swimming is allowed in July, but be careful as the water is very cold.

    Baseball in a great old ballpark

    by Ironic1 Updated Apr 17, 2003
    Wade Stadium in West Duluth

    I'm not a big sports fan, but I love an evening at the ballpark, and even moreso at a park like Wade Stadium. Wade was built back in the 1940s by the Roosevelt's Works Progress Administration and it's a lovely old brick and wood ballpark. Up until 2003 it was the home of the Dukes, a farm team for the big leagues. As of this summer it will be the home of the Huskies, which is a team somewhere between college and minor leagues. It doesn't matter, really. The smell of popcorn and the feel of wooden benches on a warm night with the crack of the bat and the roar of the crowd is all you really need. Names are meaningless when the batter is standing in the box.

    Ticket cost is very inexpensive ($5 - $8) and the food, while not great, is fairly inexpensive for the venue. A family of four can spend the evening there for under $50 easy.

    Duluth's natural scenery is great to explore for the sportsman. When you're into summer boating, hiking, fishing, conoeing or skiing, you can do it all in the greater Duluth area.
