Why Visit Duluth?!

Why Visit Duluth?  Winter or summer, the city has something for everyone….

Duluth’s visitor’s and convention bureau, Visit Duluth, is seeking photos for its 2015 Visitor Guide.  These were a few of my favorites from the past year or two which are just a small sampling of why the Lake Superior City of Duluth should be on everyone’s vacation destination list.

The summer arts and crafts fair at Glensheen (taking a year off in 2014 as construction wraps up on the grounds) creates a stunning shopping venue.

If you  need a break from shopping, you can grab a seat on one of the benches and rest a bit while enjoying Glensheen’s beautiful gardens.

For a different seating option, the contrasting whites and blues at Brighton Beach in the winter invite you to sit and ponder the Lake awhile.

And for wintertime shopping, Canal Park is full of unique shops.

On the far eastern end of the city, the mouth of the Lester River provides a peaceful spot to watch the moon rise over Lake Superior.

Once the sun is down and moon is up, Lester Park’s lit ski trails are just across Highway 61, with an extensive trail system day or night for cross-country skiing.

But, come Spring, the ice breaker is a welcome sight as the Lake’s waters open and shipping (and duck and goose) traffic begins!

If you travel to the western end of the City, you can find the Lake Superior Zoo, where the peacocks provide a colorful show as they strut around the grounds.

And if you happened to visit the Zoo last year, you may have been fortunate enough to catch a glance of not one, but two, baby Angolan colobus monkeys.

Spring gives way to Summer, and that means it is time for a Portland Malt Shoppe treat, while you enjoy the Lakewalk.

Duluth is bursting with opportunities for residents and visitors alike.  If you have not had the opportunity to explore the City, be sure to add it to your travel list.
