Things  to do in Duluth, MN

Duluth should be at the top of any Minnesota itinerary. This Lake Superior hillside city with a population of approximately 85,000 truly has a vibe all its own.

Duluth, MN residents, sport a strong local pride mixed with a love of the outdoors and the self-sufficiency needed to survive bitterly cold, snowy winters. But don’t write Duluth off as a sleepy, small Midwestern city. There’s no shortage of things to do in Duluth MN.

Glensheen Mansion

The stunning home now belongs to the University of Minnesota and is open for self-guided tours every day, for a glimpse of America’s pre World War I opulence and to hear a tale of murder most foul!

Duluth Lakewalk

You will love walking from Leif Erikson Park to the lighthouse in Canal Park for a leisurely (and very scenic) three-mile round trip walk.

Hike to the Lighthouse

5 out of 5

Hike out on Duluth’s north pier to the lighthouse to watch the impressive (and often international) ships pass beneath the Aerial Lift Bridge to Duluth’s shipping yard.

Enjoy the Craft Drinks

Vikre Distillery in Canal Park has you covered if you prefer spirits over beer or cider. Their cedar gin is amazing! The craft drink scene has exploded in recent years in this small city.

Visit the Enger Tower

Visiting the Enger Tower is one of the best things to do in Duluth MN for the sweeping views of the Duluth harbor and hillside.
