I love walking downtown by the lake. The walk is clean, safe and family friendly. You can take the trail all the way up to North Duluth, which makes for awesome walking.

This is a beautiful place to walk along the shore of Lake Superior. The recent storm has caused enough damage that it's currently closed. Summer, especially, is a great time to walk the length of it.
