Duluth is an awesome city in Northern Minnesota. It's amazing in the Autumn because the trees turn fiery colors. The forest becomes a rainbow of fall colors. I also love sitting on the shore of Lake Superior and watching the crashing waves. It's also fun to go down to the harbor and watch the giant ships pass through the channel. In the summertime you might be lucky if you get to see the Ancient Maritime ships. Duluth is also the home of Glensheen Manor, which is truly haunted, but is also famous for the movie with Patty Duke, "You'll Like My Mother". Duluth is a pretty hilly city. It's not flat at all as far as driving. There are a lot of unique victorian houses.

Favorite places would be the Maritime museum, watching the seagulls s****h food from people's hands. Also the Duluth Zoo and walking along the boardwalk. It's also just a hop, skip, and jump from Superior Wisconsin. The ship wrecks are really cool too!
