And there are some fun activities you’ll only find in fall, like these:   Corn Maze 10am–6pm Saturdays and Sundays through October 26 This outdoor corn maze is just ten minutes from downtown…


Superb Fall Color Destinations in Duluth

Drive Skyline Parkway Winding along the hillside overlooking the cityscape and Lake Superior is a tremendous way to enjoy Duluth’s Fall Colors.
