Wouldn't be a complete trip to Duluth without a walk on the cakewalk. FREE and great places to eat at the beginning, middle or end!

A nice walk right along the lake. Lots of activity. Have to be aware of skaters, runners, walkers, dogs, bikes. Horse drawn carriages on a different path.

The lake walk extends for miles right along the Lake Superior shore. The surface is good and there is plenty of space for bicyclists, pet walkers, runners, and walkers.

The full repair will be done in the spring once the weather breaks but the lakewalk and most of the boardwalk is in perfect shape. The city closes the area around the lighthouses as it is dangerous with the ice that... More
