Winter is on its way out and Spring is just around the corner! Well, this is Duluth, so winter tends to hang around a little longer – but that’s great because there are so many fun things to do in Duluth during Spring Break!
The skiing is just about perfect with fresh snow. Spirit Mountain and Mont Du Lac ski resorts are fully open and will offer you a day of fun on the slopes. In addition to skiing, you can also go tubing, cross county skiing, and partake of a nice, hot meal and relaxing drink as needed.
Find your wild side at the Lake Superior Zoo with their $5 Fridays all winter long. Not all animals hibernate and there are plenty of cute creatures to enjoy at the zoo.
Duluth has become an artist haven and many studios offer opportunities for anyone to take a class and experience creating something amazing. Lake Superior Art Glass offers classes on making wine goblets, ornaments, pendants, and marbles. Paint a masterpiece at On The Rocks Art Studio and learn the art from local artisans. The Duluth Art Institute offers rotating exhibits along with opportunities to try out a variety of arts.
We know you want to find something great for your family during the breaks from school so we are offering a Spring Break Deal to help you take advantage of all that Duluth has to offer. And if you want to really save – check out our advance purchase deal. We give you a huge discount for purchasing early but restrictions do apply such as this awesome deal is not refundable in the event of cancellation or early departure once purchased.

In Minnesota you are pretty much guaranteed to have cold and snow in January & February. And in Duluth we are doing a Cold Front Celebration February 1 – 4, 2018! We love all things in the snow and invite you to experience them too!
The celebration is in Canal Park and includes fun activities for the whole family. Experience the newest craze, fat biking with demos by Duluth Day Tripper. Warm up by the fire pits or enjoy some s’mores. There will be snow classics like sledding, skiing, and ice skating, as well as food and beverage vendors, including craft brews.
We are offering a special discount for this weekend. What could be better than spending the day enjoying our winter and then come back to the Edgewater and warm up in our tropical waterpark?!
Want to come another weekend? There is always a lot of activity in Duluth no matter the time of year. Make your reservations for any time and we will keep the room warm for you!
With the many community ice rinks and Heritage Sports Center, there is always good ice for ice skating. The skiing at Spirit Mountain is great right now. You can check their website for snow depths, conditions, rental information, and hours. You can also enjoy the zip line and alpine coaster. And speaking of Spirit Mountain and snow, did you know you can ride your fat tire bike on the trails? Biking is now an all-season activity in Duluth!
Duluth and the North Shore are full of great trails for snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, hiking, and snowshoeing. In addition to the trails, many of the lakes, rivers, and streams are frozen now and can provide scenic views not usually available.
Don’t miss out on the winter fun in Duluth!

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.
