Win Prizes With Visit Duluth’s First Ship Challenge Trivia Contest

Here's another chance for you to win prizes with Visit Duluth and the Duluth Seaway Port Authority.  It's called the First Ship Challenge Trivia Contest and it's different than predicting when the first ocean going ship is going to sail under the Aerial Lift Bridge.  This one is  based on knowledge rather than guessing when the first saltie will arrive in Duluth.  Are you up for the competition?

Avoid Holiday Stress & Disappointment; Pick The Right Gift And Ship Early

It's starting.  We were at the Mall of America this past weekend and it took us half an hour to find a parking spot.  We waited in line to eat, make a purchase, pee and even to use the escalator.  We weren't doing any holiday shopping yet, but those that were are smart.  As long as they get the gift in the mail within the next couple of weeks they are ensured it will arrive before Christmas.  I know, I know it feels too early, but you'll be glad you did.  So, tall boy up, get shopping and giddy up!

Warning from the City of Duluth: Use Caution Around the Aerial Life Bridge Due to Falling Ice and Snow


While training for Grandma's Half Marathon (which has been very difficult with the snow we've gotten so late in the Spring), we park in the Canal and run across the Aerial Lift Bridge and down the Point all the time.  It never occurred to me that there could be potential danger lurking above me, other than from the pigeons.  I'm still planning on using one of our City's icons, but we'll definitely be cautious.  Thanks to the City for watching out for us!
