    You must have gone on a bad day ( which happens), but I have had the best burgers of my life there, and I've had a lot of burgers.

    After we told you about it, you go every time tech is there

    I recommend: Duluth Grill (A MUST), Uncle Louis Cafe (for huge portions for breakfast), Mexico Lindo, Pizza Luce (not Duluth specific but still good), Sammy's Pizza, Coney Island (my dad always took me there) and the Portland Malt Shop for some ice cream.

    If you go to Two Harbors you have to drive the few more miles to Gooseberry Falls State Park (it is a North Shore tradition). Just keep your kids close and don't let them get too close to the edges. You can even hike down to the Lake and look at the Agate Beach.

    Enger Tower has a great view of the whole city. Chester Creek Park and Lester River Park have the falls and rapids you are looking for within Duluth. Hawk Ridge is where you an see some nerdy bird watchers and cool birds.

    As for shopping there is the spread out downtown area and the Dewitt Sietz Building in Canal Park has some interesting shops that your wife might like.

    That's all I can think of for now...
    Is Uncle Louie's that dive-diner-type place? It has booths pretty much just on one side of the place, and the counter on the other? If so, so much YES. The omelettes are awesome.

    Those are all good place and I also highly recommend both Northern Water's Smokehaus and the Brewhouse. Even though the street is seedier, "Deluxe Coney Island" on 1st street is WAY better than "Original Coney Island" on Superior St. If you're into Triple D, Gordy's Hi-Hat in Cloquet and At Sarah's Table/Chester Creek Cafe near UMD were also featured.

    Recently went on a trip up the shore and Sugarloaf Cove has a beautiful beach, although also probably a bit farther than you want to go. If you head up to Gooseberry, eat at the Rustic Inn in Castle Danger. Great food and better pies than Betty's/

    The drive on old Hwy 61 between Duluth & Two Harbors is tremendous, and here's another great stop in Two Harbors if you're feeling tacky and abrasive. Don't tell my boss(es) I haven't been there yet, hopefully it is required for employment.....lol.
    The "Honka Tree" (that's the name I learned) on that highway is long gone, though. That tree was a landmark, IMO.

    We've spent a lot of vacation time on the North Shore, and I can never get enough of the Temperance River. Beautiful and amazing walking up on the rock, a nice trail along the river once you've cleared the chasm, and a perfect place for skipping rocks at the mouth. Haven't been for a few years now, and I miss it. Sniff.
