    I just got back from Duluth a couple of days ago and I must admit I think its one of the most overlooked cities around. It is full of wonderful architecture as it was booming at the turn of the century. Lake Superior is like a freshwater ocean. The city is very hilly and the views are fantastic overlooking the lake.
    Huge ocean going ships come into the harbor at all hours of the day and night.They have an very old lift bridge that still operates. I would recommend it.

      Agreed. When my in-laws retired, they actually moved north to live in Duluth (from Kansas City). So many options for outdoor activities both summer and winter. Lots of fun shops in the area around the lift bridge, they go to plays and musicals put on by the University, and keep themselves busy in the community.

    Duluth is an awesome city! The lakefront neighborhood with lighthouses, the aerial lift bridge ( http://www.goduluthmn.com/best-duluth-attractions/aerial-lift-bridge/ ), bars, restaurants, & shops is eclectic and fun. There are wonderful parks and so many outdoor activities in Summer and Winter. There are some FANTASIC mansions (one even comes with it’s own murder mystery along the shores of Lake Superior. https://glensheen.org/

    We love historic homes and architectural history. After my lifetime living in Minneapolis Duluth seemed like it was built for us! We moved here 2 years and couldn’t be happier. It seems that Duluthians valued their historical building much more than they did in the Twin Cities. Historic homes are more the norm, along with many unique styles. It’s a clean, beautiful city with fresh air and much to enjoy year around. Our home was completed in 1904 and would be hard to replicate today. The best thing is that it is very historically intact and we paid about half of what we would have in the Twin Cities! And we have awesome universities and colleges. It didn’t take me long to notice something unexpected-people are nicer here! They truly are. There is a stunning historic mansion on Superior St. right now that’s on the market. It’s called the Crosby Mansion and the photos are amazing if you look it up!
