I love going to Brighton Beach to collect rocks and observe beautiful Lake Superior and on warm days will step into lake to cool off. Is a very easy place to access as one heads north out of town.

We stop here often for picnics while traveling north. When staying in Duluth we come to see the sun rise here. It's magical anytime of day/night or any season!

Along the northeast end of Duluth, Brighton Beach Park offers gorgeous views of Lake Superior, any time of year! This is a favorite location of local photographers and picnickers too. Beautiful scenery. It's a place for a solo visit, to have time just for yourself....More

This beach is great! There's beach area and rocky areas. There were people kayaking, grilling and swimming. Nice relaxing area. We loved it!

The weather was a little cloudy, and the big lake was stirred up a bit from rain, but this park on the north shore is always fun. Sit, relax, enjoy, rock pick, picnic...you will never go wrong here.

We ventured out of Duluth to begin our North Shore journey. This was a nice stop looking back at Duluth.

Lots and lots of choices of hotels in the nearby community of Duluth. I would start by looking here on Trip Advisor. The hotels that are near the Aerial Bridge downtown are more spendy. Try the Radisson, that's my favorite... More
