As one of Minnesota's largest cities and most attractive tourist destinations, Duluth offers a blend of traditional mall shopping and unique opportunities both in and around the community. Miller Hill Mall serves the community and surrounding area with a traditional anchored shopping mall experience while the shops in the Canal Park district and along the North Shore scenic highway serve travelers and people looking for "cabin lifestyle" clothing, furniture and curios.
Miller Hill Mall is located off of US Highway 53 between downtown Duluth and Duluth's international airport. It has three major anchors -- Sears, JC Penney's and Younkers -- as well as a number of junior anchor stores like Barnes and Noble and Old Navy. Mall stores include everything from Abercrombie & Fitch to Coldwater Creek, while the mall also includes such food and drink options as Caribou Coffee, Five Guys Burgers and Fries and an Olive Garden. Miller Hill Mall is covered and located indoors. This makes it a pleasant place to shop even during Duluth's cold and snowy winter months.
The Canal Park district is located across Interstate 35 from Downtown Duluth. Enjoying a lakeside location, it is filled with a range of unique shops and eateries. The Duluth Pack store sells unique and attractive rugged bags made in Duluth while the Northern Waters Smokehaus sells locally made smoked fishes and meats. Grandma's Saloon and Grill is a Duluth landmark known for its reasonably priced large portions of comfort food -- a perfect way for travelers to fortify themselves for a day of shopping in Canal Park drive's many stores. Don't miss the Minnesota-themed shops that sell local products including tasty Abdallah candies, comfortable Minnetonka moccasins, and delicious and healthy locally harvested wild rice.
Heading northwards from Duluth on the scenic highway to Two Harbors, travelers will find a range of unique shops. Many focus on selling items suited for lake cabins. These include rustic furniture, nautical themed wall hangings, and chainsaw carved bears. In addition, such lifestyle clothing brands as the "Life is Good" line are also readily available. These stores typically mix a country chic aesthetic with the influence of the surrounding Northwoods. Many also sell unique and attractive antiques.
