Thread: Questions for Duluth

  1. #1

    Default Questions for Duluth

    Can a Duluth person give me some more information on the stadium?

    Are concessions cash only? And what types of food/hot drinks are available? Any specific rules for bringing bags in with me?

    Is tailgating a big deal, and anything else worth planning for in advance?

    I'll let the Bulldog fans do most of the answering, but as I said before, try to get down to Canal Street. And dress in layers, it can get pretty cold.................

    As everyone else has stated it gets fricken cold up there. Commerce has gotten to explore all parts of Minnesota in just under a year! But Duluth is a different animal in terms of coldness compared to Mankato and Winona.

    thats a manageable temp if the wind is reasonable. We got lucky last year with 2 games in Minn with 40+ degree temps and mid 30s in Central Wash.

    That was a sauna in Mankato last year. The snow might have slowed you down!

    And a low of 12 so that's not that bad for Duluth.

    Just looked now....17 degrees at Kick. 5mph winds tho would be better than worse.

    Commerce folks..take a quick look at a map for Duluth..it's right on the lake and is a tourist area in the summer (nice downtown area there right on the lake) etc.

    They tailgate pretty well there and they had a beer garden inside the stadium past the end zone....but not sure what's the latest with that. Anyway, nice stadium (Malosky) and very friendly people there.

    Tailgating is very big, you probably will be invited to eat at various parents tailgates as everyone is very friendly, beer is served, not sure about hot drinks, but hot food is served, usually Famous Daves is serving. As mentioned play to go to Canal Park, and Bentleyville should be open (spectacular Christmas lights) it is close to Canal park.

    Looks like I'll be in Superior, WI just down the road from Duluth. I'm going to be there Fri & Sat nights. What is there to do there/Duluth? Any good eats? What is Canal st?

    Best burgers anywhere are available at the Anchor Bar right there in Superior. The place looks like a dive from the outside, but the burgers are top notch.

    Canal Park is the main tourist trap in Duluth. It's filled with restaurants and hotels. The Lakewalk and the Ariel Lift Bridge (both located in Canal Park) are very popular in the summer, but not so much this time of year. As another poster mentioned, Bentleyville is located a short walk from Canal Park. It actually opens this Saturday night. It is spectacular to see once, but can get old after you've seen it several years in a row. Since it's opening Saturday night, it will be very full.

    As for things to do on Saturday before or after the game, I recommend eating at Tavern on the Hill (www.tavernduluth.com). It's located right across the street from the stadium and has a big menu and all sorts of craft beer. They let you park in their parking lot and walk to the game as long as you go in and at least have a drink. One other area of town that locals know about that a lot of non-locals do not is Chester Park. It's only a few blocks from campus (and can be impossible to find if you don't know where you're going and don't have GPS), but has a network of hiking/biking/cross-country ski trails that are beautiful and very challenging. You can find it pretty easily using Google Maps.

    If you're enjoy craft beer, Duluth has plenty of breweries. Bent Paddle is the biggest and most popular one, but there are several others. A smaller joint named Ursa Minor Brewing just opened up that makes good beer and also Neapolitan style pizzas. There are many others and all of these can be found with Google Maps or GPS.

    If you decide to stay and eat in Superior, one place to try is The Anchor Bar & Grill. It's definitely a dive, but has delicious burgers and freshly cut fries. The restaurant was featured on Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. Be aware that they do not accept credit cards, but meals and drinks are very cheap.

    Travel safely and make sure you bring a warm coat, hat, and gloves. I lived in Dallas for four years and while it can get cold down there, it is NOTHING like how it can feel up here when the wind blows.

    Thank you guys for the info. I'm actually coming from Dallas too, I was there for both Minnesota games last year and the 2 Michigan games the two years before that, and it's been cold but being this close to the lake will probably be a different cold lol

    If there's a wind off the lake, it'll be a "warm" wind. The lake temp is probably upper 30's while the air temp is about 20.

    The next few days here in Commerce it wont get to 40 degrees. North wind chill right now has it feeling like 30. After dark, overnight temps will be mid 20s and the wind chill will drop to the teens. I can see the football field from my office and havent seen anyone out there yet today. I suspect they will be out under the lights later this evening after the temp drops another 5 or 6 degrees. This is probably a good thing as the shock factor of that cold will be gone at least.
