Messed around and played tourist this weekend in Duluth.. Mostly just down to Canal Park (downtown)..

Watching 1000'+ ships come through, taking the harbor tour, stomping around the canal museum, doing the museum ship, and just people watching.. A weekend isn't enough time to take in Duluth..

Little boats



Biggest boat on the Great Lakes



Other big ones





Inside one

Damn I'm from Duluth!

Too bad I'm 1600 miles away and already made that trek on my Ducati Monster a month ago

Well, there's always VBRIV???

I just happened to be on vacation, running the UP last week.. I decided to burn Holiday Inn points instead of camping, and Duluth's Blues festival had everything booked last weekend, so I did the east to west route, ending in Duluth after starting in Sault Ste. Marie the weekend before.

Seems weird to leave Saturday afternoon, only to make the almost 400 mile ride back up this upcoming weekend, but I can enjoy the rally and the Trials events and not feel like I missed out on Canal Park.

I'm sure I'll have to get back down there for some mini donuts at Crabby Bill's..

Paper, is there a museum that allows you on the ship or was one tied up and allowed people on?

I would like to get on one of those ships.

The William Irvin is in Duluth, and is a museum you can go on and look around. That's the one paper was on - it's pretty cool, well worth a visit. It's down by canal park, just a short walk from Grandmas and the lift bridge where you can watch the ships come in. It really is worth spending some time looking around down there. Watching the thousand footers come in is really very cool.

Thank you!

I have been to Canal Park a number of times but never knew about the William Irvin. I'm putting it in my GPS now.

A number of years ago my wife and I stayed a few night in a condo directly across the lift bride. I watched those ships come in all night. It was fantastic. I'll make sure to get the KC folks down the for a while.

How is the food at Naniboujou Historic Lodge Restaurant?

I stopped by there years ago but was too early to eat. It is a cool place. Is it worth going there for lunch?
