Watch the water To see the changes brought by each season, just look at the lake! The spring thaw creates sparkling shelves of ice that stack up along the shore. Summer brings blue horizons and sunshine glittering over the surface of the water.

@smalich

Fall winds whip up spectacular waves, and the deep blue of the lake is the perfect backdrop for fall colors. In winter, the lake begins to freeze, though it rarely freezes over completely, and cold air moving over the water creates “sea smoke.�

A RICH

history

During the latter half of the nineteenth century, Duluth was the only U.S. port with access to both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. In 1869, the booming lumber and mining industries, along with the arrival of the railroads, made Duluth the fastest growing city in the United States. The National Park Service has designated a large portion of Duluth’s downtown as a National Historic Register District. Today, you can take a stroll down the brick paved streets of old downtown where you’ll find historic buildings with beautiful architecture or take a drive through the city to catch a glimpse of beautifully ornate homes built by timber and lumber barons.

NORTH SHORE SCENIC DRIVE

Begin in Duluth’s Canal Park and follow Lake Superior’s sweeping shoreline 154 miles to the Canadian Border. Along the way, breathtaking cliffs and North Shore beaches are bordered by the Sawtooth Mountains. Rivers and streams forge dazzling waterfalls as they make their rocky way to the big lake.

HIGHWAY 61: ALL AMERICAN ROAD

The road that takes you “up the Shore” was designated one of the most beautiful drives in America by the National Byway Center. No wonder. As one of the country’s most fabled thoroughfares, this vintage stretch of road is full of natural splendor and dotted with small-town mom-and-pop shops beckoning you to peek inside.

Rising 700 feet above the city, the parkway winds along the lake’s prehistoric shoreline: through the woods west of Spirit Mountain, past Enger Tower, over a dozen tumbling waterfalls, across Hawk Ridge and down the secluded boulevard known as Seven Bridges Road to Brighton Beach.
