This is a crazy place in the summer. You have to pay to park your car. There are dozens of shops and the aerial bridge is right there. Watching the ships go in and out of the harbour is lots of fun and very interesting....More

This is right along by the water and Lakewalk. Nice stroll with informative monuments scattered about. There had been a huge storm the day before we were there so there was lots of debris but I was very impressed with how quickly the clean up...More

There’s nothing better than the views in Canal Park! The lake is so beautiful to see! It is so relaxing to hear the waves splashing. The shops are always fun to visit even though it seems the prices have taken a hike over the years....More

If you're a hipster, this is the place to go. Very trendy, very happening. But if your old like me...good luck trying to find a place to go to the lake without having to pay to park. Major turn off!

We only had one afternoon and night to spend in Duluth so we booked our hotel on the lake. Walked the shore, visited the museum, and watched ships enter and leave. Even with the cool damp weather it was great!

The views, the trails, the history, and even the smell in the air make this a perfect place for an evening stroll. Wish we lived closer so we could utilize more often!

We walked around Canal Park, and we were lucky enough to see the bridge lift for a large ship. It was interesting seeing how the bridge works ... I've never seen that type of bridge before. The sailors were waving and having a good time....More

We were here shortly after very high waves from a storm had crashed ashore and demolished the lake side walkways and boardwalks, deposited driftwood many feet inland from usual shore line, carried large rocks all over yards of hotels; mother nature showed once again, who...More

I don't believe that Tall Ships Duluth is an event held every year, it seems that it is every 2-3 years on the Great Lakes. Duluth was 2013, and 2016.
