The snowflakes are flying and red and green are in the stores – It’s time for the winter holidays and Bentleyville! America’s largest free holiday light display welcomes visitors (weather dependent) November 18 through December 26. Bring a toy or food to donate if you wish. Enjoy the festivities of hot cocoa, cookies, popcorn, visiting with Santa and Mrs. Claus, toasting marshmallows, warming by the fire, and seeing all the holiday lights!
Let us make your visit to Duluth and Bentleyville as easy and full of fun as possible:
Step 1 – Find dates that work for your family. Keep in mind that visiting during the week instead of Friday and Saturday will save you money! AND Bentleyville will be less crowded during the week. But don’t let that stop you – come on the weekends if that works, it will just take a little extra patience. Bentleyville is enjoyable every day of the week! Check out the Bentleyville Crowd-O-Meter for more information.
Step 2 – Book a hotel room at the only hotel with a waterpark in Duluth. At the Edgewater we offer significant savings during the week – you can even afford to stay 2 nights!
(Please note the Bentleyville Special is sold out: Nov 18, Nov 24, Nov 25, Dec 1, Dec 2, Dec 8, Dec 9, Dec 15, Dec 16)
We know our guests love to take the train from the hotel to Bentleyville and back, so we have added additional nights! The train, operated by the North Shore Scenic Railroad, will transport our guests on Thursday nights November 30 – December 21 and Wednesday, December 20.
