Parks · Scenic Drive · History Museums
Situated on the westernmost point of the Lake Superior, Duluth represents a booming port city. In fact, the city of more than 86,000 is built around 28 rivers and streams that flow into the lake. A stunning aerial bridge allows large cargo ships pass through. The Canal Park District downtown marks the conversion of an old warehouse district to an area filled with eateries, shops, and hotels. Travelers can stroll along the¬†lakewalk when the weather's nice, or use the city's skywalk system that links several miles of downtown buildings (something that's especially helpful during bitter cold winters). The city's early beginning as a fur trapping area and trading post helped define its robust culture. Add Duluth and other destinations in United States to your travel plans using our United States trip maker.

Where to stay in Duluth

Canal Park and the downtown areas offer a full range of lodging, including tower hotels, national-chain motels, inns, and bed and breakfasts. For a more scenic stay, book accommodation with views of Lake Superior. Staying in Canal Park or downtown puts you within easy reach of numerous restaurants, shops, and attractions, but you should also consider bedding down in the historical area east of Chester Park. Many of the inns and bed and breakfasts here occupy turn-of-the-century mansions, and the neighborhood itself offers a quiet respite from busy downtown and Canal Park.
