OK, so if you’re new to the Twin Ports, you’ve hit the jackpot for hills, lake and woods. That also means outstanding peaks to view all of Mother Nature’s mischief. Check out these four locales to view a sunset, sunrise, full moon, you name it.

Skyline Parkway is one of Duluth's treasures, uniquely showcasing the city from end to end while providing spectacular views of Lake Superior and the St. Louis River Bay. Skyline Parkway offers many overlooks along the way. Many of the neighboring parks and trails offer recreational activities such as hiking, cross-country skiing, bird watching and more.

Brighton Beach. This rocky beach gets you up close and personal with the shore and waves. Set your seat on the billion-year-old basalt rock and enjoy.

Park Point. This sandy beach stretches the distance with awesome views of Duluth. There’s plenty of beach to share with the gulls — just please don't feed them.

Clifftop gazebo at Enger Tower. Walk past the gothic tower, through the Japanese garden and Peace Bell to emerge on this hefty overlook.
