"Life on the Middle Coast" Top 5 Page for this destination Duluth by Ironic1

Duluth Travel Guide: 307 reviews and 463 photos

You have your east coast, your west coast... well I live on the middle coast. Lake Superior is big enough to be an inland sea, and Duluth is the ultimate port. We get ships from as far away as Norway and Greece.

I love this city. Its architecture, its people, its hilly streets and avenues. It's a great place to visit and a great place to live.

It's another Perfect Duluth Day!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lake Superior, terrific architecture, access to the outdoors, great coffee houses and restaurants, an active counterculture, arts, major colleges
  • Cons:high unemployment, low self-esteem

    This is a really great place. My family and I go here often. This place has the best coffee anywhere in Duluth.

    The Ripsaw sounds like my kind of paper, right along the lines of the Village Voice. And I'm so surprised that Duluth has a tourist trap, I guess I'm too EastCoast-centric.

    I love duluth, I recently moved away from the state, but I'll always remeber the Hacienda del sol! Also try the Chinese place across from the Casino, it's got the best egg rolls ever!
