    Re: Things to do in Duluth

    Thanks all. Keep em coming.

    Did this in the Tech thread before going to the Keweenaw for the first time a few years ago and it made all the difference in the world and we had a great trip.

    This is probably a little further than we can do with only two days up there but we're planning a trip for next summer to the top of the trail and I'll write it down for then.

    Thanks!

    On second thought, I would keep your kids out of there.
    I believe I've been there. Is that where there's a sign that says something to the effect of "Dangerous falls, lives have been lost here?"

    Of course I had to go for a closer look while the wife sighed and said something about natural selection under her breath.

    Thanks for reminding me. Out at Spirit Mountain, west end of Duluth, they have a unique mini golf course, alpine coaster, and zip line.

    Will probably go up the shore a bit, at least to Two Harbors...
    Being located further up the shore, Lutsen is likely beyond your range for this trip. But if it's doable, the Alpine Slide at the ski resort would definitely appeal to your boys. I also recall having good meals at the Main Lodge down at the lake front.

    Hope that info is still current; it's probably been 15 years since I've been up there...

    A microbrewery with food would be The Brewhouse, its in the Fitger's Building on Superior St which also has a bunch of little shops in it. Tycoons is downtown and they are owned by the same people as The Brewhouse, there's a bar in the basement called The Rathskellar that serves craft beers and whiskey from around the world on a rotating menu. The park they may have been referring to is Lester Park on the east end of town.

    Sammy's Pizza (103 W. 1st Street) -- you could do worse. Plus it's got that "this is the same as how it looked in '59" thing going on.

    Ah shoot, that's Grand Forks. Sorry, I got nothin'.

    We're actually thinking of jogging over there on the ride home so we can hit it. Gotta see what all the hype is about!

    Isn't there a cave tour in/near Duluth? Who doesn't like caves!

    Things to do in Duluth

    Just found out that we will be tagging along with my wife on business and will be in Duluth Friday & Saturday. One of my favorite small cities that I've been to.

    We've been to Duluth several times, but want to know what we've missed.

    I'm sure we'll hit Canal Park for at least a meal, but we've done that. Done the beach beyond the lift bridge.

    I've got two boys age 10 & 13. Not really into zoos, aquariums or museums. Looking for cool things to do outdoors. Waterfalls or rapids that are safe to swim in, cool beaches, etc.

    Will probably go up the shore a bit, at least to Two Harbors.

    Any suggestions from locals or people who know would be greatly appreciated.

    Looking for the outdoor stuff as well as good moderately-priced places to eat (a micro-brewery?), any cool shopping districts (is there anything like Uptown in Minneapolis or State Street here in Madison?) and anything else that is cool.

    Heard there was some city park up the hill that was really cool with rapids maybe?

    Sorry for the ramble. Thanks!
