    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Curb the Boredom! Things to do in Duluth

Duluth has many points of interest for college students, but some of them may be a little hidden.  To save you the time and give you some tips, I decided to make a list of some of the places that are “Must Sees” and “Must Dos” in the city.

  1. Canal Park- If you haven’t heard much about this place yet, you will very soon.  This is probably Duluth’s most popular destination, located right along Lake Superior.  Canal is lined with shops, restaurants, hotels, and beautiful landmarks, making it an easy way to kill lots of time while enjoying the lake.                                                                         http://visitduluth.com/lodging/listings.php?type=hotel-motel&location=canal-park
  2. Park Point- Travel through Canal Park and over the bridge and you will find a public beach right on Lake Superior.  It’s clean, sandy, and a perfect place to have a picnic (complete with benches and grills).  If you are looking to soak up some rays, this is the perfect place.
  3. Drive Skyline- Take a trip along Duluth’s Skyline streets to get some awesome views of the lake and harbor (and the city, too!).  All of Skyline is marked by street signs so it is easy to follow.
  4. Downtown Shopping- Sure there is the mall and Target, but the shops along Superior Street’s downtown are where the real treasures lie.  Take a walk and hit the boutiques, then stop in at Pizza Luce or Cold Fusion to fuel up. YUM!
  5. Duluth Art Institute- The Art Institute features local artwork and galleries that pertain to the city.  Not only is it a great place to relax and lose yourself in modern and classic style art, but you may be able to snag some extra credit from your art professors for visiting!                                                                                                                                                           http://www.duluthartinstitute.org/
  6. “Graffiti Graveyard”- Okay, so it’s not a graveyard.  But….it is covered in graffiti.  Located right behind the Amsoil Arena, this place features all of Duluth’s “street art” by its inhabitants.  This is located in a rather rough area, so viewing it during the day is recommended.  If you do decide to go at night, go with a group of friends.  Safety first!!
  7. William A. Irving (aka “The Haunted Ship”)- This ship will become very popular once October rolls around.  The staff on the William A. Irving completely transform it to create a spooky, haunted ship for Halloween.  You may even be able to snag some student discounts on admission, so keep an eye out for flyers and announcements.
  8. Fon DuLuth Casino- Yes, yes.  All of us know what gambling is.  This is Duluth’s local casino, located on Superior Street in the downtown area.  You must be 21 to be admitted.
