Winter is a great time for a getaway to Duluth. There are endless trail systems to explore and plenty of cool things to see and do. Home to Minnesota’s Largest Playground, “The Lake”, the big lake they call Gitche Gumee is constantly changing, offering up something new to see or do every day. Folks around here are like  to explore the shorelines and snap Instagram worthy photos of the spectacular ice formations. Come see for yourself!

Do something that brings out smiles 🙂 and enjoy our guide to making the most of your winter getaway.

Where to stay?

Beacon Pointe on Lake Superior of course! We’re geologically blessed, to say the least. Stunning views of Lake Superior — the Lake and the Harbor. Twelve steps from the water/ice. We’re also the only hotel in Duluth that features condo-style lodging. Perfect for families. Duluth’s best-kept secret is meant to be shared.
