Spring is a delightful time to visit us in Duluth. Weather and temperature can vary drastically, but it’s the beginning of a new season, and one that brings with it abundant opportunity and excitement. The air is fresh, the birds start to come out, and no matter what the weather does, Duluth’s attractions are open and ready to welcome you. Shipping season in Duluth opens on March 25, heralding in the season, and bringing back one of Duluth’s most popular pastimes; shipwatching.
