Hockey was born in The Northland and we sure know how to celebrate it. The US Hockey Hall of Fame is just an hour drive away. Duluth has stellar college hockey programs for men and women in the UMD Bulldogs, with an award winning Amsoil Arena. There's the Great Lakes Pond Hockey Classic that happens every year in Superior during the Lake Superior Ice Festival. The community goes a little nuts about hockey, and that may be too much for you to handle.
There's nothing quite like going to a concert at Bayfront Festival Park. You'll get spoiled listening to the music with the backdrop of Lake Superior in front of you.
Duluth is the Christmas City of The North. Who else has an entire section of the city converted into a Christmas Village?

Christmas just isn't done quite as good anywhere else.
