Located on the north shore of Lake Superior, Duluth is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Midwest region. When you arrive, dive into the Great Lakes Aquarium, the only all freshwater aquarium in the United States. The aquarium currently houses 205 different species of animals, from otters to piranhas. Next, stroll around Canal Park and see if you can spot the adjacent Aerial Lift Bridge rise to allow ships to pass below. The long thin peninsula beyond the bridge is home to the idyllic Minnesota Point, a popular tourist-oriented neighborhood.

Fitting for a tourist city, Duluth also boasts a vibrant food scene that offers a wide range of selections. On a hot summer day, there is nothing better than munching down ice cream from Camp Creemee while enjoying the view of Lake Superior. And if you are in the mood for some barbecues, OMC Smokehouse offers terrific ribs!
