Just how much water is that?
It's enough to wash away all your stresses and distractions.
Your hometown, Duluth, sits on the edge of the largest freshwater lake in the world -- Lake Superior, where leisure, adventure, romance and history come as easily as the waves on the shore.
The lake is a permanent fixture in your world, but how often do you take it for granted? Get in touch with your inner child with a walk down the Lakewalk to watch 1,000-foot freight ships pass -- almost silently -- under the Aerial Lift Bridge. Indulge in terrific food and listen to local bands in Canal Park's lively entertainment district (and if you feel the itch, even get up and dance).
Whatever captivates you, it's right here in your backyard. Need some comic relief? Feed a few belly laughs at a Renegade Comedy Theatre show. Looking for culture? Marvel at the sounds of the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra. The kids like sports? Take in a minor league baseball game at Wade Stadium, a West Duluth landmark. How about shopping? Browse for one-of-a-kind antiques all over town -- Duluth's retail center is second in the state only to the Mall of America -- or peruse the art galleries and shops in the historic waterfront shopping district.
Make this weekend unforgettable at one of Duluth's century-old bed and breakfast inns -- each perfect for a little romance and each with a story of its own to tell. Take an old-fashioned horse and carriage ride, or tour downtown in a trolley with a very old-fashioned fare -- a quarter. It's like going back in time and getting back together. Then rekindle that old flame with a sunset walk on the beach.
Take some time and relax.
Or maybe not.
Maybe you're looking to sweat, to get out and get moving. We have something for that. Challenge some of the Midwest's best rock climbing or mountain trail hiking on Lake Superior's breathtaking North Shore. Or try biking on the Willard Munger trail (or any of the area's other recreational trails) as they wind through our rugged outdoors. Go in-line skating along the Lakewalk. Go running on Skyline Drive. Just go. And reward yourself with all this city by the bay has to offer.
With a body of water this big right outside, the possibilities for family fun are endless. Paddle a kayak on Lake Superior for a completely new view of the water. Build a castle and jump the waves on Park Point. Charter a boat and snag some tasty lake trout or Coho salmon for dinner. Experience the lake in every way you can.
Connect as a couple, or as a family, and leave behind the daily grind. However you like to unwind, or wind up, you can do it right here in Duluth.
