Fun Duluth Winter Getaway Ideas


Winter is an excellent time for a getaway to Duluth. There are endless trail systems to explore and plenty of cool things to see and do. Home to Minnesota’s Largest Playground, “The Lake,” the big lake they call Gitche Gumee is continuously changing, offering up something new to see or do every day. Folks around here like to explore the shorelines and snap Instagram worthy photos of the spectacular ice formations. See for yourself!

Do something that brings out smiles 🙂 and enjoy our guide to making the most of your winter getaway.

Lake Superior’s shoreline is gorgeous and peaceful in winter. You can expect great enjoyment by simply exploring incredible ice formations that line the shore.
