Room With A View: Duluth & Superior Hotels Located On Lake Superior
Duluth is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Minnesota, if not the most popular. People come from everywhere to see the city on the lake and take in the amazing Lake Superior views. Who could blame them?
Tourists are in awe when they visit Duluth, shocked at just how beautiful the city really is. Of course, the big draw is the big and beautiful lake, which is so big to the naked eye it may seem like an ocean.
When people come to explore, they love to see the sights like Enger Tower and take in all Canal Park has to offer. They also want to get the full Duluth experience, which means staying right on Lake Superior. (Even a Backstreet Boy was in in awe of the lake and Duluth in general!)
