DULUTH, MN - Many consider Duluth to be Minnesota's "crown jewel" when it comes to places to visit. The port city of Duluth has rebuilt itself as the Midwest's finest outdoor adventure destination, especially mountain biking, during the past several decades. "City on a Hill" Duluth, Minnesota, has lift-served downhill slopes, flowing cross-country routes, and more ledges than you can remember. The Duluth Traverse connects all of the city's trails in a unique and audacious way.

Duluth's natural beauties, diverse culture, and history are yours to experience and explore. Such as picking up rocks along the ancient beaches of Lake Superior or exploring the city's vast outdoor paradise. Two breathtakingly unique coasts meet in Duluth at the westernmost point of North America's largest body of water, the Great Lake Superior. At its heart is a harbor where 1,000-foot ships glide beneath the magnificent Aerial Lift Bridge to dock in a beautiful setting.

Every direction has access to hundreds of miles of bike and hiking trails within minutes. A local cycling advocacy organization called Cyclists of Gitchee Gumee Shores arose when interest in mountain riding spread throughout the city (COGGS). Singletrack, doubletrack, and gravel roads make up most of the DT's 40-mile network of trails, which connects all the critical trail hubs in town.

Taste your way through a wide range of restaurants and bars. Shop in a wide variety of stores, whether they are situated along lovely brick-paved walkways or as real gems off the main path. No matter where you go, there's always something to do, whether it's museums, train journeys, boat tours, or ballgames. In addition, the city's cultural scene is ablaze with every sort of music conceivable, day and night.

Come stretch your legs, calm your thoughts, and take it all in. It's free! Simply put, Duluth is excellent for you.

From visitduluth.com, the city's convention and visitors bureau, you can learn about upcoming events, special offers, and more.
