Rollerblading 5 stars
If you are planning on taking a trip to Duluth, Minnesota in the summer time and want to do some Rollerblading then you are in luck because there are tons of places to rent rollerblades and also tons of places to rollerblade. My personal favorite place to rollerblade is on the “Lakewalk.” The Lakewalk” is the perfect place to rollerblade because the whole time that you are rollerblading you get this fabulous view of beautiful Lake Superior. Another great part about rollerblading on the lake walk is the when you reach the end of it there is a big Viking ship display. The Viking ship is called the Leaf Erickson Viking ship and is very cool.

Native American History 5 stars
If you are traveling to Northern Minnesota or Duluth, Minnesota then you are going to have the opportunity to learn about some great Native American History. Lake Superior is one of the most fascinating lakes in the world, not because of its immense size but because of all of the great history that comes along with it. In Lake Superior there are many places along the shore lines where there is ancient Indian writing on the rocks that dates back thousands of years. Specifically, it dates back thirteen thousand years ago. The Duluth, Minnesota area is absolutely saturated with awesome Native American history.

Hiking Trails 5 stars
If you are planning on taking a trip to beautiful Northern Minnesota, or specifically the Duluth area, then you should be aware that there are a lot of beautiful hiking trails to take advantage of. Duluth, Minnesota has a very nice system of hiking trails. For example, there is this park called Hartley Nature Park where you are given the opportunity to walk on miles and miles of trails through the beautiful north woods. Hartley Nature Park is also really cool because it is a nature reserve. There is a spot along the trail of Hartley Nature Park where there is a small lake and canoes available to you to paddle around in the lake. I like to take my two dogs to this park because it is really peaceful and quiet.

Soccer 5 stars
If you are planning on taking a trip to Duluth, Minnesota and want to try something different then you should go catch a youth soccer game. A lot of people don’t know this, but Duluth has a huge soccer community. Soccer really means a lot to Duluthians and what even means more to them is beating teams from Minneapolis because the teams from Minneapolis always think that they can come up to Duluth and beat us. The soccer program in Duluth is really a great one. All of the games are well organized and every game is very exciting. You can go to boys or girls game of any age. All you have to do to find out when a game is being played is go to Google and type in aysa schedules and it will tell you all the games that are being played.

Drunken locals 5 stars
If you are planning on taking a trip to Duluth, Minnesota then you should keep in mind that there are a few safety tips to keep in mind when going there. Duluth, Minnesota, although being a beautiful city, it can also be a dangerous one if you wander into the wrong neighborhoods. The areas that you should stay away from if you are a tourist are the areas by the two main hospitals which are Saint Luke’s and Saint Mary’s. For some reason in America they put the hospitals in the worst part of the cities. Typically, if you go in these areas in the daytime you will not face any problems. However if you wander through there at night you might run into some conflict.

Gramma's Marathon 5 stars
If you are going to be in Duluth for the summer months than you should see if you are there during the Gramma’s marathon. Gramma’s marathon is one of the coolest and most famous events that takes place in the Duluth-Superior area. The Gramma’s marathon is a grueling race up the North Shore and has many people from all over the world that participate in this great event. I think a couple of years that guys from somewhere in Africa have won. Usually when the guys from Africa run they crush their competition. So if you happen to be in Duluth during the big marathon then make sure to try to attend because you will have a lot of fun.

Glensheen Mansion 5 stars
If you are in Duluth, it doesn’t matter what time of the year, there is a place on the Far East side (lakeside) known as the Glensheen Mansion. The Glensheen Mansion is ideally located on the famous Lake Superior and gives you the opportunities to take some great photos of the mansion and the lake. The actual tour of the mansion takes a hour and a half but it is really educational and fun. During the tour you learn about famous art from the renaissance period and see how the family lived in the huge mansion seated on Lake Superior. I strongly recommend taking a tour of this great mansion and letting the guide enlighten you with some great Duluth history.

Pizza Luce 5 stars
If you are planning on taking a trip to Duluth and want to eat pizza, drink beer, and hear live bands play then Pizza Luce is the place for you. Pizza Luce offers many different domestic and also foreign beers some of which can be found on tap. The nice thing about this place is that you can come here and chill out and watch a live band play when you are eating your food. Pizza Luce has a really nice environment, one that leans more towards the liberal peace movement in America, which is very cool. Another great aspect of this place is the taste of the food. I can’t think of another pizza place in Duluth that I enjoy more than Pizza Luce.

Inger Tower 5 stars
Many people don’t know that Duluth is virtually a mini version of San Francisco, well, besides the street railcars. Duluth is a very beautiful city that is ideally located right on Lake Superior and Saint Louis Bay. Duluth is also on a big hill, so as you could probably imagine there are many opportunities for great photos. One specific point that comes to mind is a place called Inger Tower. Inger Tower is on the very top of the hill where you can see the entire city and also parts of Duluth’s sister city, Superior. Inger Tower is also a really cool historical landmark where you can walk in and out of at your own discretion.

Saint Louis River 5 stars
If you are in Duluth, Minnesota and feel the need to do some fishing then you should consider doing it on the Saint Louis River. The Saint Louis River is really nice because the fishing is great there. Every time I have fished there I have always caught something. The best spots to catch fish on the river are right by the rocks. Whenever you see some rocks you know that your chances of catching a fish there are much higher then out in the middle of the river. Typically, Small Mouth Bass are the fish that dwell by the rocks. Another cool part about river fishing on the Saint Louis is that along the way you see a lot of old railroad bridges that are really cool to look at and take pictures of.

Kayaking on Park Point 5 stars
If you are going to travel to Duluth, Minnesota then you will never have a moment where you will not be able to find something entertaining to do, whether it is drinking alcohol or being active. I would personally recommend going to Park Point if you are there in the spring, summer, or fall and checking to see if they are offering any kayaking classes. The way it works is you show up, rent your own kayak for like five bucks, and then the instructor will give you a very informative hands on course on how to kayak. They will teach all kinds of stuff like how to approach waves, and what to do if your kayak rolls over.
