If you’re moving to Duluth, better be ready for the cold. However, opportunities abound in the city and surrounding area, most centering around beautiful Lake Superior.

Anyone considering moving to the beautiful city of Duluth should be made privy of our extremely long and brutally cold winters. If you can endure frigid temperatures and copious amounts of snow then you will be rewarded with perfect summer temperatures and the most gorgeous views that Lake Superior has to offer.

Duluth, MN is a beautiful city with historic architecture, an exciting craft beer movement, and lots of outdoor activities. Duluth is nestled on the shores of Lake Superior and plays host to many festivals throughout the year. From dragon boat racing in summer to fat tire biking in winter, Duluth has it all.

Duluth is like the Minnesotan San Francisco; not only does it house a rich culture of art and music, but it also is known for its large hills. Unlike San Francisco, however, Duluth can have intense winters. In addition to having large snowfalls, Duluth is also known for bitter, biting, cold temperatures. If you move to Duluth, be prepared to bundle up!

Duluth, Minnesota, has been voted best outdoors town by Outside magazine in 2014. It is at the tip of magnificent Lake Superior and surrounded by forests and rock formations. Duluth offers fishing, sailing, canoeing or kayaking and hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, camping, skiing and snowboarding. It is known for its cooler-than-average weather. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, Duluth will be the city for you!

I think Duluth is the most beautiful city in Minnesota. It is on Lake Superior. If you love fishing, then you’ll love Duluth. It gets really cold in winter, bring all your furry coats. We have a variety of restaurants, nice hiking trails and parks. There is so much to do!

This city is nestled into a hill on the shores of Lake Superior, the largest freshwater lake in the country. It has small-town charm but with the added advantage of bigger-city amenities. It has beautiful landscapes and activities during all seasons. With bustling local business and vibrant arts and theater, anyone can find something new and exciting to do here.
