Though it may technically still be fall, in Duluth it feels as though winter has arrived. For us, it’s hard not to get excited for the upcoming holiday season. Luckily, we have just a few weeks to go until the first of many celebrations begins. It truly is just around the corner, so now is the perfect time to plan your holiday activities before it’s too late. This November and December, bring your family together and make lasting memories at Duluth’s top holiday attraction, the Bentleyville Tour of Lights.

Bentleyville Tour of Lights
As America’s largest free walk-through lighted display, you really don’t want to miss the Bentleyville Tour of Lights. Bentleyville Tour of Lights had its beginnings at the home of founder Mark Bentley. Today, more than 200,000 people come to Duluth each year to see this incredible lighted display.
This year, there will be over 4 million twinkling lights decorating Duluth’s Bayfront Park. Bentleyville Tour of Lights opens to the public on November 18, 2017, with a special visit from Santa and Mrs. Clause around 4:30. Parking lots can be busy, so your best bet to avoid long waits is to park in Downtown Duluth, and ride the free Jingle Bus or walk to Bentleyville. The Visitor Guide has a great map of parking possibilities. For a magical and comprehensive holiday experience in Duluth, ride the North Shore Scenic Railroad to Bentleyville, available on Fridays and Saturdays starting November 24th. Make sure to warm yourself throughout the night with complimentary hot cocoa, cookies, popcorn, and roasted marshmallows.
When you think you’ve seen it all, including the incredible 128-foot animated Christmas tree at the center, then it’s time to head back to the warmth and comfort of the A.G. Thomson House Bed and Breakfast. The Bentleyville Tour of Lights truly is the perfect way to spend an evening in Duluth this holiday season. Book your stay with us today.
