And for my family, the drive up along Interstate 35 during the autumn months can be half the fun of the journey.

Only a 2-hour drive from our home in the Twin Cities, a trip to the city of Duluth has, over the years, found its way among our family’s holiday traditions. It began as a Christmas gift to the children, specifically my desire to accumulate less “things” and instead, more experiences together. While we tend to choose the holiday season for our visits, know that there is plenty to do and see all winter long in Duluth.
