Overview

Watch seagulls soaring while you stroll around this popular spot, part of the revived Duluth waterfront. Nearby are a sculpture garden, jazz clubs, coffee shops, motels and restaurants. If you like ships, stand on the pier and watch huge boats and ships, some from around the world, come and go daily.

Great family experience close to home watching ocean going ships passing under the historic lift bridge, exploring the marine museum, shopping in the many small boutique stores and enjoying lunch, dinner or fine micro brews of Canal Park.

Six of us visited CPBC on a very busy Friday evening. Service was excellent. Beer was really good and the food came out quickly and was excellent. Would not hesitate to come back.

Touristy trap with expensive trendy shops, overpriced noisy restaurants and non-romantic. But, the lake views and ship canal are worth the trip to see.

I don't believe that Tall Ships Duluth is an event held every year, it seems that it is every 2-3 years on the Great Lakes. Duluth was 2013, and 2016.
