Living In Duluth
Nestled on a 600-foot bluff overlooking the largest freshwater lake in the world, Duluth is an incredible place to live.
Millions of years of glacial activity, winds, and lava flows created the lake and the bluff on which Duluth resides. These natural forces left a strong and rugged shoreline, perfect for hiking, skiing, golfing, sailing, biking, rock-climbing, and other outdoor adventures.
Duluth is a place that offers something for everyone. Duluthians and tourists take advantage of the countless outdoor activities provided by Duluth’s natural landscape. A lively downtown business scene gives residents and visitors ample access to day and nighttime activities.
As one of the largest of the Great Lakes’ international ports, Duluth is an important shipping, commercial and manufacturing center. Major industries in Duluth include health care, education, aviation, technology, and tourism. Located at the southwest tip of Lake Superior, Duluth is halfway between St. Paul and the Canadian border. Although narrow, our beautiful city extends approximately 25 miles along the lakeshore.
