Duluth, a city like no other, is the perfect place to relax and unwind this fall. Brilliantly colored foliage in fall’s signature crimson, orange, and golden hues are breathtaking against the blue backdrop of Lake Superior. Fall is the perfect season to get outside for a hike, a bike ride, or a paddle. Afterwards, Duluth’s vibrant downtown is the perfect place to unwind with a beer, live music, or romantic evening. In fact, Duluth’s downtown has been undergoing something of a transformation in recent years, with once-vacant and downtrodden neighborhoods enjoying a revival of spirit and craft. One such example of this renewal in Duluth is the Lincoln Park Craft District. Book your room at our Duluth Bed and Breakfast, and come explore this exciting new neighborhood with us.
Rediscovering the Lincoln Park Neighborhood
The Lincoln Park Neighborhood, whose streets have long-been empty, is enjoying a business makeover. Today, the Lincoln Park Neighborhood is redefining itself as the Craft District. Lincoln Park is now Duluth’s leading destination for handcrafted items, as well as the visual and culinary arts. Since 2015, at least 14 businesses have moved into renovated brick buildings along Superior Street, which marks the heart of the Lincoln Park Craft District. Popular businesses in this new Craft District include Frost River, Bent Paddle Brewing, Hemlocks Leatherworks, OMC Smokehouse, and the newly opened Love Creamery. You can read more about the revival of this historic portion of the city here.
Local tour company The Duluth Experience also offers a walking tour of the Lincoln Park Craft District. Their knowledgeable tour guides will take you behind the scenes to meet the artisans, restaurateurs, brewers, and craftspeople who have been instrumental in the revival of this formerly derelict part of town. Highlights of the tour include a sampling of Bent Paddle Brewing’s beer and art demonstrations.
