We love going to Duluth. The fact that it is only about 2 1/2 hours from our house makes it a special trip, but not one that is so long that the kids get stir-crazy and start fighting. Whenever we do travel up north, we always book a room at the Edgewater Duluth. It is a fantastic hotel and water park all in one!
We always try to have fun during our road trips. One of the things we like to do is stop at places with oversized animals or places with fun names. This time, we pulled into The Pit Stop.
A couple of years ago, we stopped in Rush City and saw The Biggest Walleye! These pictures are always fun and have become kind of a tradition on our family trips. Yes, we like finding giant animals and pretend that they are eating our children.
Our Room at The Edgewater Duluth
The Edgewater Duluth has a lot of different rooms to choose from when it comes to size, placement and views. We always prefer a room that faces Lake Superior, because you can’t beat a private balcony and this view!
However, if you are traveling with a big group of kids, or have older kids, you can also get a room with a balcony that overlooks the water park!
Anyway, one of the first things to take place after check in is my daughter’s hotel bed check. This has happened in every hotel ever since she was young! She jumps twice and then, lands in a laying position on the pillows. She will then let you know if the bed it good or not!
After that we change into our swimsuits and head straight to the water park. This is where I have to jump a big self-esteem hurdle, because putting on a bathing suit is not easy for me. However, I am usually able to convince myself to do it!
Celebrating a Birthday
This trip to the Edgewater Duluth was a little more special than most, because we were celebrating my daughters 8th birthday. She asked to go to the water park in Duluth, because it is her FAVORITE place!
Did you know that the Edgewater staff can help you setup a birthday surprise? After eating our DELICIOUS pizza from Tiki Tom’s, we received a 6 pack of cupcakes and a birthday center piece for our table. It definitely surprised the birthday girl in the best way!
Activities in Duluth
There are so many different activities to do and so many different things to experience in Duluth, Minnesota that I definitely couldn’t list the all. However, the Edgewater partners with a lot of fun places and events, like A Day Out with Thomas! Bentleyville and more!
