Create Your Own Hallmark Movie Moments at Beacon Pointe

!000 ft Paul R Tregurtha arrived Duluth as the lights of Bentleyvile light the way.

The charm of Duluth draws visitors all year round but come winter this picturesque city transforms into a genuine winter wonderland. If you’re a fan of holiday films and romance, you’ve undoubtedly caught glimpses of iconic Duluth locations recently. Last year, Hulu’s Merry Kiss Cam delivered a romantic love story of two very different people framed through a hockey kiss cam.

This year the Hallmark Channel’s Rescuing Christmas, stars Minnesota-born actress Rachel Leigh Cook as Erin, a photographer, win three wishes in a plan drawn up by two of Santa's elves to spread the Christmas spirit. However, the scheme backfires after Erin's last wish that causes Christmas to disappear entirely. Soon enough, she’ll have a change of heart and must rally the community along with the help of two of Santa’s elves to help save the Christmas spirit. Rescuing Christmas released as part of the Hallmark Channel’s annual Countdown to Christmas.
