2.Explore Canal Park and The Lift Bridge
With countless shops in Canal Park, you can spend hours touring stores and grabbing a bite to eat in one of the multiple restaurants like Green Mill or the Canal Park Brewery. After exploring Canal Park you can treat yourself to a coffee and take the family down to the Lift Bridge.
The Lift Bridge raises for up to 900 ships annually and is a sight to see in action. In the spring ships will start traveling the Lake after the ice breaks, so depending on when you visit you may be able to see one of the first ships of the season!
3. Hike Enger Tower
Enger Tower sits on top of the hill in Duluth and is a beautiful park to visit in any season. The tower is 80 feet tall with 105 steps to the top, but the trek is worth the beautiful 360 degrees panoramic view from the top. The spring breeze from Lake Superior can be chilly, so make sure to dress in layers!
