Once the center of Duluth’s warehouse district, today Canal Park is a central destination in the city for shopping, dining and walking along the lake. In recent years, hotel options have expanded. At the edge of the Canal Park district, Canal Park Lodge opened in 2007 to offer guests a modern northwoods feel overlooking the lake and just steps from the district’s main attractions.

Entering the Lodge’s grand entrance with its large stone fireplace gives a welcoming feel year round.  A hot breakfast is served daily at one end of the large lobby, including scrambled eggs, omelets, sausage, Belgian waffles, Caribou Coffee and other items. In the evening, the lobby opens as a cash bar with complimentary appetizers. Or have a drink by the lake at the Lakeside Lobby.

The Lodge’s 116 modern rooms offer a range of options including LCD TVs, refrigerators and microwaves, in-room Jacuzzi and decks overlooking the lake. Step outside for a walk along Duluth’s famous 4.2 mile Lake Walk, or head further down the canal and you’ll be just steps away from the galleries and restaurants.

When to Go:
A weekend away in Duluth, MN‘s Canal Park Lodge is a popular family destination all summer long, but don’t forget to come back in the winter for beautiful frozen views of the lake, a warm fire in the lobby and a range of activities, including the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon and skiing at Spirit Mountain.

Getting There: 
Take Hwy 35 to Duluth and exit at Lake Shore Drive. Canal Park Lodge is just on the edge of Canal Park.

While You’re There:
Don’t miss Canal Park’s many activities, including dining at Grandma’s Restaurant, shopping at Sivertson Gallery and Duluth Pack, roasted nuts or popcorn along Lake Walk, views of the Ariel Lift Bridge or sailing on the lake.  Take a short walk along the Lake Walk to Fitger’s for shopping and a beer tasting. Or head downtown for a piece of pie at Takk for Maten or a ride on the North Shore Scenic Railroad.
