Attraction details
Owner description: Watch seagulls soaring while you stroll around this popular spot, part of the revived Duluth waterfront. Nearby are a sculpture garden, jazz clubs, coffee shops, motels and restaurants. If you like ships, stand on the pier and watch huge boats and ships, some from around the world, come and go daily.

“Very nice area.”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

We spent the afternoon walking the park. Driving around was tricky and when it's busy it is a challenge to find parking, but the waterfront is nice and there is plenty of shopping and places to eat. Plus it's always fun to watch the aerial lift bridge go up to let the huge ore ships through the lock.

“walk”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

It was to walk through the park area. It was a gorgeous day and lots of things to look at. Wanted to take a carriage ride but we never did get it done, ran out of time.

“buzzin'”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This is a very active place. I give it one star short because of the severe shortage of parking. If you're patient you'll find a spot but it may take a while. Otherwise its full of cool shops, restaurants, bars and informative areas. I'd highly recommend it.

“Take your time”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Take a stroll and enjoy the view, shop the shops, take a carriage ride. Just a wonderful place for family, couples or friends to get together.

“Great place to see while in Duluth area”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

It is always crowded so be ready for crowds. It is still fun for all ages. We rented a 6 person bike for a ride to see the waterfront. Great to show everyone the boats coming in and out of the harbor.
