ART IN THE CANAL 
The natural beauty of the Duluth Waterfront. The historic sites in Canal Park. The color and activity of a working international seaport. All combine to create the perfect setting for an outdoor gallery of international art. 
 
At carefully selected sites along Duluth's waterfront, you'll discover a collection of international sculpture and art pieces. All have been selected for their thought-provoking, enduring and memorable qualities by the Duluth Public Arts Commission under the direction of the Mayor of Duluth and the Duluth City Council. Through each artist, the diverse social, cultural and historical values of the City of Duluth and its sister cities have been identified and interpreted. 
 
The works of art chosen by the Commission are for the enjoyment of the public and acknowledge the great diversity of interests and cultural backgrounds of those who view it. The walk and tour along the waterfront is an experience the whole family can appreciate and enjoy.

NORTH SHORE SCENIC DRIVE

This 24 mile stretch of road offers a variety of experiences. In June, it becomes, for some, a grueling test of endurance in Grandma's Marathon. In the fall, the Edmund Fitzgerald folks see it as "almost home" in their quest for the ultra marathon. Scenic highway 61 has been designated a Federal Scenic Byway. There is no highway logo that goes with that designation, but the route will be highlighted and noted on future highway maps. Lodging, restaurants and gifts are available along the scenic drive. A paved bikeway and plenty of places to pull off the road for a short walk down to Lake Superior can also be found.

This rare combination of maritime force and grace has been experienced by very few. Now, you can experience life on the lakes by touring the S.S. William A. Irvin and companion tug, LAKE SUPERIOR.
