Overview

Watch seagulls soaring while you stroll around this popular spot, part of the revived Duluth waterfront. Nearby are a sculpture garden, jazz clubs, coffee shops, motels and restaurants. If you like ships, stand on the pier and watch huge boats and ships, some from around the world, come and go daily.

It was winter when we went but it was still fun to see the sites. The lake had big chuncks of ice at the waters edge. There is more to do once the snow melts

Fun for all ages! Watch ships from around the world in the Duluth harbor! Seagulls fly overhead, waves along the beach, fun restaurants and great hotels. Easy access to shops and sight-seeing. Accessible parking too.

You can’t go wrong by spending a day in Duluth at Canal Park. Shopping, sites, and food. This is Duluth’s premier area that draws big crowds when events are on mostly in the summer, as winter time is much more quieter other than when it...More

We went down to Canal Park on a nice summer evening. It was a happening place. You can enjoy the lake walk, walk out to the light house, go to canal park brewery, watch barges go underneath the lift bridge.

I don't believe that Tall Ships Duluth is an event held every year, it seems that it is every 2-3 years on the Great Lakes. Duluth was 2013, and 2016.
