Winter Dates in Canal Park
Canal Park is a great place for a winter date. It has easily accessible scenic locations for Facebook-worthy couples shots and it is just as easy to find a warm spot inside you both can enjoy. Beacon Pointe is right on the Lakewalk and a medium length walk or very short drive to the Canal.
To start with, parking is easy this time of year. Parking is free and you usually don’t have to walk too far in the cold to get where you are going. But, if you want to walk...

Vista Fleet Cruises
The Vista Fleet is like a tour bus on Duluth’s waterways. Like a bus they take you by points of interest while a narrator explains the key features. Unlike a bus, the courses can be as fluid as the water they travel on.
“We have about four voyages we offer, but it is all based on weather,” said Vista Fleet Vice President Sarah Steinbach. “Depending on the cruise we will go out under the Aerial Bridge, spend a little bit of time out on the lake, weather permitting,...

The Beers of Summer
When the weather is warm there is nothing like sitting out on the patio with an ice cold beer. Duluth’s beer scene is consistently vibrant and while All Pints North may be over for the year there are still plenty of places to imbibe. Here are some of this summer’s offerings. Because the craft beer industry is so fast paced, these may go off tap at any moment—but we’re sure the new beers will be equally tasty.

Superior Hiking Trail: Enger Tower to the Twin Ponds
One of the most powerful things about Duluth is its combination of wilderness and city life. Beacon Pointe is steps away from the lake and three miles from upscale restaurants, art galleries, and symphony orchestra concerts. Take a right instead of a left, though, and you’ll find yourself on a rugged forest trail.
That’s the Superior Hiking Trail, a treasure for locals and a free-to-use amenity for guests. This trail runs 310 miles from...
June 20, 2016What to Do in Duluthsailing,sailboat races
Kentucky has its derby and Boston its marathon, but where in Duluth can you experience the thrill of a race? Winter has dogsled marathons and ski meets and summer does have its share of marathons, but for a truly lake-oriented experience, you have to stay for the sailboats.
Every Wednesday night of the summer, you’ll see the usually calm Lake Superior fill up with white sails. This fleet of boats looks peaceful at first. But in reality, every boat is on a mission. Each captain is striving with...
