Stopped at this rest stop and was surprised by the amazing views of the Duluth Bay! Make sure you visit the opposite side of the facility to see the best views! Great place to picnic, if the weather cooperates! There is a dog area .

If you see the sign from the highway, take the exit, and stop. It's worth your time to strech your legs, and enjoy the panoramic view of the twin ports. The rest area is kept clean, and the sculptures on the property are a good...More
