Celebrate the North: The fascinating Port of Duluth-Superior

It's the latest in our ongoing video series celebrating northern Minnesota.
Port of Duluth-Superior

If you've been to Duluth, you've seen the cargo ships coming and going by way of Lake Superior. It's one of the busiest ports in the United States, accommodating maritime transportation needs for more than 35 million short tons of cargo each year. 

Nearly 900 ships enter the Port of Duluth-Superior annually, making it a fascinating visit if you're looking for some of Minnesota's richest history – and it's where we're taking you in our third installment of Celebrate the North, a video series dedicated to feeding staycation-starved Minnesotans with ideas for their next fun adventure. 

Celebrate the North is an ongoing video series taking readers to places around Minnesota that are worth making a day's trip to visit. Check out past Celebrate the North videos below:
