Been traveling in the area for a few days and this was the first beach we have found that wasn't all rock. Nice sandy beach that our dog loved.

Loved walking barefoot in the sand. View of Duluth was great. Loved watching the barges. Easy to drive to.

Duluth's Park Point beach is stunningly beautiful. Miles of sandy beach and the cold, crystal clear water of Lake Superior. I prefer it to swimming in the ocean. It leaves you feeling fresh and clean, not coated with salt! Don't swim when the Lake is...More

To get up close you will need tickets. Check the festival website. This is a HUGE event in Duluth, so be prepared to stand on line for many things. Where the ships are, there is very little shade, so you might consider... More
