Once you get to Duluth, you can park your car…and then forget about it until you have to go home. Whether enjoying the city by foot, bike, trolley, scooter or bus, there’s an easy and convenient way for you to see the sights – no matter your mode of choice!

Where to Park

Many lodging options will come with a parking spot, and there are several pay lots and ramps throughout Duluth.

By Foot, Wheelchair and Stroller

Despite the hill, many places in Duluth are easily accessible by taking a stroll, whether on the Lakewalk, a charming neighborhood street or the climate-controlled skywalk, which connects buildings throughout downtown Duluth. The Skywalk also crosses over I-35 and connects downtown with Canal Park via the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center (DECC). Part of the experience of visiting Duluth is seeing something new around every turn – from a big ship coming into the canal, to the mural outside a business’s storefront to what’s in bloom at the park. Soak it all in while making your way to your next stop.

By Bike

If you brought your own bike, hop on any number of Duluth’s trails or use the bikeways that run the length of the city to cruise the around and feel that fresh Lake Superior air on your face. And, if your two wheels didn’t come along, you can rent a bike from any of the following area businesses and enjoy the ride.
