Parks & Nature
You don't have to travel far from our Airbnb to see and experience some of the best sights that Minnesota has to offer!
Jay Cooke is alive with color. The trails are clear and well maintained. We love the winding river sounds and sites. Birds chirping, moss growing, leaves blazing with color in the fall and lush green all through the year. What more could you ask for? How about an easy 15 minute drive to the park? We recommend: -- The swinging bridge with great views of the river. --Consider hiking the Silver Creek loop about 3.5 miles (plan 2 hours). --The Munger bike trail is paved and runs the length of the park.

Take a stroll along the beach of Lake Superior and the beginning of the north shore. The beach has stunning smooth rocks of all shapes and sizes and colors. Take a load off your feet and bring a bite to eat and enjoy the view from one of the many picnic tables or benches. If it's a hot or rainy type of day there is also an open air shelter with a roof over the tables to shield from sun (or rain)! Enjoy the sound of the waves and peaceful environment. FREE.

Waterfall is simply gorgeous and so relaxing. It's very easy walking and accessible paved trails down to the falls. You can also access more rigorous hiking trails and access near to the Superior Hiking Trail.

The Canal Park in Duluth is an active harbor with large cargo ships and a schedule to see them arrive and depart. The Lift Bridge is one of a kind and must "rise" for the large ships to pass through to the safe harbor. We recommend you take a stroll along the canal and drive over the bridge to the sandy beach a the end of the road. It's a hidden gem and away from the crowd.

Munger park is rich in cultural history, but go for the great view of Lake Superior and the canal park area if for nothing else! There is a tower that you can climb for an even better view and don't miss the opportunity to bang the bong for a deeper cultural experience.

A long stretch of rare, sandy beach with easy access and the closest in Duluth ... just head across the Aerial lift bridge and don’t rush as it’s a leisurely residential drive down to e beach area. You’ll know you’ve arrived when you see the airport and the beach will be on your left on the other side of the sand dune!

Great burgers and 50's diner atmosphere - make note that it is closed in the winter! It's not much of a secret anymore, since it was featured on "Diners Drive-Ins and Dives"

Drinks & Nightlife
Great historic bar area and often has live music. The dining room area is very family friendly and some of the tables have a view of Lake Superior too! They offer micro-brews if that's your thing and the local smoked trout in dishes is to die-for... we recommend the trout wrap or go bigger for a steak or burger and you won't be disappointed. TIP: This is a popular place for dining, so if you show up during a prime meal time be prepared for a 20+ minute wait for a table. Call ahead and they should make a reservation for you. The bar area is usually pretty accessible at all times, until you get later in the evening a seat may be hard to find when the live music starts; arrive early for a seat.

Cool vibe for people of all ages. It's the only restaurant bar that is along the lakeshore of Superior in Canal Park and has a fabulous outside fire pit area within spitting distance of the lake. This definitely looks and feels like a brewery, since you can see the HUGE stainless steel vats of beer from the bar area. Stop in for a nibble or a beverage, we think you will like it! It's definitely more busy on the weekends and during peak meal times so plan ahead for a bit of a wait for a table. TIP: it's a louder environment with a lot of tall ceilings and glass windows. Not ideal for a quiet romantic dinner. FREE PARKING!

DULUTH PASS ACCESS: The Glensheen Historic Mansion is situated on beautiful grounds on the shores of lake Superior and beautiful views of the great lake! The craftsmanship and word working is worth a visit. The twisted history will cause you to pause! TIP: There are often special events like craft fair and holiday gatherings. Check their calendar to partake in a special event (or avoid those days to ensure you get good and easy access).

Shopping
Ya, sure you betcha! This is the place to go to get a slice of Scandinavian sweets, sundries and gifts both local made and imported from Scandinavian countries ( aka Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark). Nice selection of jewelry and hand painted items too that are "Keepsake" worthy dust collectors.
