Join us this April and May for

Duluth Community Days

Thank you to those who live and work in Duluth. The 86,000 residents, 35,000 daily commuters, and almost 7 million annual visitors are at the root of what makes Duluth so unique and one of the best places to live and visit in the state.

This year, members of our tourism industry, in partnership with Visit Duluth and the City of Duluth, are trying something a little different. We’re launching a series of “Community Days,” where special offers are available to attend one of the many amazing attractions and experiences found only in Duluth.

The goal is to ensure everyone has the opportunity to benefit from the industry that our community invests in through tourism tax. Whether you live here, work here or both – we are proud to showcase some of the best Duluth has to offer. The Lake Superior Zoo, Great Lakes Aquarium, Spirit Mountain and numerous other organizations that call Duluth home, are excited to welcome you.

Please check out the list of Community Day offers below.

Thank you, and I’ll see you out there!
