Can you sum up Duluth? Duluth has the feel of a small town, but summer nights seem to have a never ending buzz of a big city  with sounds of cars driving through canal and people enjoying the warm nights and breeze from Lake Superior in Canal. Duluth is also historically rich and has some of the most beautiful scenery and areas surrounding.

A perfect day in Duluth? Waking up for the sunrise and going to Brighton Beach, listening to the crashing of the waves as the sun peaks up over the horizon, then going to eat breakfast at New London Cafe in Lakeside. During the heat of the day going out to Park Point and jumping in the lake and enjoying the warm weather and sandy beach. Once the sun goes down eating dinner at any of the restaurants in Canal Park and walking around and visiting the small local shops and art galleries throughout Canal.

If someone was visiting, what must they do? They need to go to Enger Tower and look out over the entire city, go watch a boat come through the harbor, eat at Gordys Hi Hat in Cloquet Minnesota (20 minutes south of Duluth), walk on the board walk, hang out in Canal, hike along parts of the Superior Hiking Trail, and drive along Skyline and Park Point.

A perfect meal? Gordys Hi Hat, and have a double bacon cheeseburger with their french fries and an order of onion rings with a thick chocolate shake.

What is the best thing about your spot? The winters are beautiful, cold and quiet!

What is the worst? The roads in Duluth are bad

A little known fact about where you live? Duluth was once home to more millionaires (per capita) than any other city in the world.
