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!

Now, if you’re not afraid of the dark and looking for something you really can’t find anywhere else. How about a flashlight tour of Glensheen mansion! This brand new tour is offered for a limited time, so hurry and get your tickets soon.

Our Duluth hotel rooms, runway ready

Our hotel rooms are looking great in their latest photo-shoot! We targeted every room style in order to help our guests pick out the right layout, bed(s), view, and more.

Each of the main room styles were photographed with our NEW bedding. It’s clean, crisp design creates a soft, cozier atmosphere. Plus there’s no bed cover. (We know you just pull them off anyway.)

Take a look! Get a feel for which room suits you. Amongst our highest rated, I suggest one of our amazing king suites with whirlpool hot tub and balcony overlooking Lake Superior. See all of our Duluth hotel rooms.
