    Pat's Bio:
    My name is Pat Bigaouette. I am a Senior Biology major. I run on the cross country and track teams at Scholastica. I currently live in Somers Hall as the Residential Advisor for Ground Floor North. Also, I am actively involved in Scholastica's theater program and hope to get cast in one of the four shows this season. This summer I conducted clinical research at Hennepin County Medical Center in the Emergency room. I also traveled to New York City to pick up a friend from school and, of course, saw the show "Wicked" on Broadway.

Its Friday, Friday Gotta Get Down On Friday.

Being the second largest city situated on Lake Superior and boasting a population of well over 80,000, many tourists flee to Duluth during the summer months for a quick, weekend vacation. Duluthwas originally founded as a port city that exported coal, iron ore and grain. Since then, Duluth has become a tourist destination because of the Great Lakes Aquarium, Aerial Lift Bridge, Canal, Minnesota Point and the NorthShore.

 While college students may study all week, weekends are full of fun an activity. Here is a list of the top 5 activities to do in Duluth:

 5)CanalPark– Canal Park used to be a warehouse district, but over the past few decades has exploded into hotels, restaurants and shops. Being located right on the water between the Aerial Lift Bridge, The Great Lakes Aquarium and the DECC, Canal Park seems to be the center of attention during the summer.

4) Great Lakes Aquarium– The Great Lakes Aquarium is the only all-freshwater aquarium in Minnesota. The animals featured at the Great Lakes Aquarium are mostly found in the Great Lakes Basin. More than 125,000 people visit the Great Lakes Aquarium each year.

3) Glensheen Mansion– Every city needs a good murder mystery. Duluth’s is the Glensheen Mansion. The mansion is a 7.6 acre, 39 room estate which was built in 1908. The heiress to the Congdon fortune, Elisabeth Congon and her nurse, Velma Pietila were murdered inside the house on June 27th, 1977.

2) Split Rock Lighthouse– Split Rock Lighthouse was built as a result of a string of shipwrecks in 1905. Since then, it has become one of Minnesota’s most recongnizable landmarks by giving viewers  a glimpse into what life was like living inside a lighthouse.

1) Alpine Coaster– The Midwest’s only alpine coaster is situated at Spirit Mountain in Duluth. Built last year, it has already become a popular desitation for locals, tourists and college students. Who wouldn’t love flying down the mountain on the 3200 foot track through the forest?

Because I love the Alpine Coaster so much, here is a video I found on youtube:
