Duluth is a beautiful city to visit anytime of the year. Trust me, I used to live there. Depending on the season I’d send you different places, but the Glensheen Mansion is proving to be a great spot any time of year. Even if you went years ago as a field trip, go again.
Through MNCommunity I was able to visit Glensheen on Saturday morning. I snuck down to the water and got a quick sunrise photo of Lake Superior (or an attempt at sunrise, it was pretty cloudy). The grounds and rooms are decorated for the holidays, with hidden elves to entertain visitors.
I would highly recommend adding Glensheen to your Duluth plans. Of course they also have Bentleyville as a way to celebrate. The crowds at Bentleyville can get a little crazy, so I would do a Glensheen tour in the early afternoon, and then Bentleyville right away at 5 when they open.
What are your favorite spots in Duluth? What types of decorations are your favorite?
