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.

What a delight Canal Park is- there are many restaurants to choose from along with shopping and sights to see. Watch the freighters come in from the lake to the Harbor. A must see if visiting Duluth

Here you can people watch, view the beautiful scenic lake, see the ships come in, and enjoy popcorn, ice cream and other treats from the vendors. Carriage rides are available, too! Lots of shops and restaurants nearby.

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.
