About the area:
Duluth is a city of about 85,000 with a remarkable history and extraordinary natural setting. Perched on the edge of the world's largest freshwater lake by surface area, Duluth and nearby Superior, WI combine to form the world's largest inland shipping port. In recent years Duluth has evolved to become a major tourism destination, offering unparallelled opportunities for cycling, kayaking, hiking, canoeing, and many other forms of outdoor recreation. Duluth is a couple of hours from the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness as well as the Minneapolis-St Paul area, a major regional urban center.
