About Duluth

Located on the north shore of Lake Superior, Duluth is the fourth largest city in Minnesota. Together with Superior, Wisconsin, we form an area known as the Twin Ports, supporting a regional population of nearly 280,000. One of the largest international ports in the world, Duluth is known for shipping and as a commercial and manufacturing center. It is a regional hub for health care, education, aviation, technology, and is a top tourist destination.

Duluth offers a multitude of cultural activities and is home to many museums, art galleries, theatre and dance companies, shows and fairs, the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra, the Lake Superior Zoo and the Great Lakes Aquarium. Each year, the Homegrown Music Festival showcases the talent of our local music scene. Duluth is renowned as a premiere craft brew destination.

At twenty-six scenic miles in length, Duluth was recognized by Outside Magazine as an Adventure Hub and in 2014 was voted as America's Best Outdoors Town. With over 11,000 acres of parkland within city limits, countless miles of hiking, biking, skiing, and snowmobiling trails, its proximity to the Boundary Waters, the Apostle Islands, downhill ski resorts, beautiful state parks, and the nearly 300 mile long Superior Hiking Trail, Backpacker Magazine named Duluth one of the best cities to raise an outdoor kid.
