NEW Patio at Canal Park Lodge


We are very proud to announce the opening of our new patio. We’ve expanded our seating area so more guest can enjoy our outdoor space. A bubbling rock fountain enhances the atmosphere, and our new fire ring creates the best place to enjoy a summer’s evening on the shore of Lake Superior. There’s nothing quite like a warm fire, a summer breeze, Lake Superior waves crashing on the beach, and great friends sitting beside you. We hope you enjoy the new patio area made just for you!

Duluth Airshow brings the Blue Angels to Minnesota


Look to the skies on August 23 & 24, 2014 in Duluth, MN and you’ll probably see the Blue Angels flying wing tip to wing tip. This spectacular event is jaw dropping. You’ll see a F-22 Raptor, B-25, high-performance aerobatic aircrafts, top aerobatic performance pilots, skydiving, a whole line up of amazing talent. To see the whole list of performers visit the Duluth Airshow website.

Come stay at Canal Park Lodge during the show and enjoy downtown, Lake Superior, and the lakewalk. You’ll be far enough away to not get caught up in the crowded, loud mall area, but close enough to get to the event easily. It’s just a short drive up the hill to the airport where the show “takes off”! See maps for details.

Don’t wait, get your tickets now and make your reservations!

Spring Break in Duluth


Whether visiting or having a staycation, extremely cool people enjoy spring break in Duluth, MN. Here’s why. The weather is warming up, which means there are tons of things to do outside. (finally) It’s really beautiful in Duluth right now (sunny and above freezing). There’s still quite a bit of snow, so your first stop should probably be Spirit Mountain. If you think they only cater to skiers, you’re wrong. They have a whole adventure park!

We also have an array of restaurants (see our Area Guide for a list of options) and attractions that are entertaining. Or how about both? Check out Grandma’s Sports Garden for great eats and live boxing!
