Latest Scouting - Duluth, Minnesota

by - Friday, February 10, 2012

A city that has been named in the list of America's top 25 coldest cities is the frankly marvelous city of Duluth, Minnesota. My friend Kristin and I headed to visit this place this past Sunday morning through Monday afternoon. We had a blast eating at some fabulous restaurants, scouring some vintage antique stores, thrifting some shops, drinking coffee + tea and trecking all over taking photos!

Duluth is situated on a sloping terrain that sits directly on the shores of Lake Superior. They have many things that take place throughout the year including the Bayfront Blues Festival, The Duluth Music & Maritime Festival, and the Park Point Art Fair to name a few. Unfortunately, we headed there at the wrong time of year for festivals. In any case, Duluth has scenes to be had and places to be year-round.

Here are a few photos from our trip.

If you're considering Duluth as a possibility for your next vacation, I would say DO IT! There are so many restaurants, art museums, cinemas, your regular shopping mall, train depot, aquarium and the list goes on. I hope you enjoyed my latest scouting!
