About Canal Park / Duluth

The city of Duluth, MN, sits at the western tip of Lake Superior, the westernmost lake of the Great Lakes. Yet, thanks to the St. Lawrence Seaway System, Duluth is connected by navigable water to the Atlantic Ocean. Its harbor is one of the busiest in the world, with approximately 1,000 freighters coming into port every year.

The Duluth waterfront once bustled with activity as cargo moved to and from dozens of warehouses and factories. However, in the mid-20th century, Duluth’s economy slumped as several major employers, including U.S. Steel, closed plants here, and most of the waterfront warehouses fell into disuse.

Today, Duluth’s waterfront Canal Park is again bustling as a revitalized area with shops, restaurants, museums, and parks. The 3-mile-long Lakewalk offers pedestrians, bicyclists, and rollerbladers a safe place to exercise in the fresh air. At one end, the canal and the Aerial Lift Bridge draw both visitors and residents to watch freighters moving in and out of port.

Canal Park features shopping opportunities on Canal Park Drive and in the Dewitt-Seitz Marketplace, a former warehouse and factory. Shops showcase regional art and antiques, outdoor clothing and gear, toys, and books. Food fans can browse for gourmet cooking equipment or sample local candy.

The Canal Park area also has restaurants to serve all types of tastes, including the locally famous Grandma’s Restaurants chain. Other local eateries offer both American and international cuisine. Visitors needing hotel accommodations will find Canal Park offers a range from national chains to family-owned boutique hotels.

The Lake Superior Marine Museum is located in Canal Park at the foot of the Aerial Lift Bridge and includes exhibits about shipping on the Great Lakes. Also nearby is the Great Lakes Aquarium, which features exhibits focused on habitats of the Great Lakes.
