DULUTH — Get Downtown week was scheduled for April 25-30, with over 30 different businesses in and around downtown Duluth offering discounts to help entice shoppers, diners and drinkers. To add a little challenge to your downtown adventure, we snapped 10 photographs at several of the participating businesses. Did you figure out where they were taken?

If you named all 10, you cracked the code to answer this question: What's the best cure for spring fever?

To complete the answer, write down the letter "M" (that's a freebie) and then proceed to add the third letter from the name of each business pictured, in order. Spaces don't count as letters, and a single business may be pictured more than once. Remember that "downtown" is defined fairly broadly for this promotion: Here's the list we drew from in selecting these locations.

When you're ready for the answers, scroll down for the reveal.
