Until very recently, all we knew about Duluth was that it is located on
Lake Superior, and it has Duluth Trading Company. So naturally,
when we started exploring Duluth, we decided to start with Duluth
Trading Company.
Arriving at the address, we were pleased to see the familiar logo (Duluth
Trading Company) on the front of the building. It does exist!
Noticing us taking photos of the logo and the signs in the window, a
manager came out, asked where we were from, and invited us to come in
and take as many pictures as we wanted.
Inside, as expected, we found the irreverent, overly descriptive, and always
somewhat humorous clothing style names.
 From Buck Naked Boxer Briefs, to Fire Hose Work Pants that are tougher than any beaver, to
Armachilla Shirts; it’s all there just like the commercials.
 After taking a lot of photos and spending too much money on clothes, we
went on to explore the city of Duluth.
Historic old buildings are everywhere. The old Railroad Depot, for example is
amazing. Overhead covered walkways that crisscross the
downtown streets, connecting hotels, banks, and the like, make
moving about easier, especially during the harsh winters .
Canal Park is all about entertainment. Lots of great sounding restaurants,
plenty of bars, an abundance of small boutiques, numerous great
hotels, and a great lakes aquarium, all call Canal Park home.

 

 

We managed to catch the Aerial Lift Bridge, just as it was lifting for a large ship to pass under.

We then drove across the bridge and along
Minnesota Ave to Point park, took a short walk to the beach, then
returned to Canal Park.
A drive along the lake front, a walk through Leif Erickson Park and
Rose Garden, and another drive through the quaint streets of Duluth
finished our day.
Duluth is a delightful city. We enjoyed a great “Retirement Day” within it’s
bounds.
