Enjoy the View the Old-Time Way

All those hours of planning, organizing, and agonizing over your wedding are finally in the past. Now, it’s time to take it easy, enjoy each other and your time in Duluth. While it may be challenging to leave the cozy atmosphere of your room at Cotton Mansion, we encourage you to deepen your romantic adventure by taking a ride in an old-fashioned, horse-drawn carriage. Choose from a variety of Top Hat Carriage Service tours that are 20 to 60 minutes in duration. Relax to the gentle clip-clop sound of hoof beats as you travel along the canal in Duluth’s beautiful Canal Park. That’s just one of four available tours.

Relax, Relate and Release

Take advantage of this special time together by scheduling a couple’s massage at Infinity Massage and Wellness. Let your cares evaporate as you and your love experience the relaxation offered by certified professionals. Exclusively, by appointment only, you’ll find a good massage will add to the enjoyment of your stay in Duluth.

What Lies Beneath

Have you ever wondered what’s really under the surface of our Minnesota Lakes? Then you will have to check out the Great Lakes Aquarium. This beautifully designed building holds a wide array of displays. You can even feed the sturgeon! You won’t be disappointed with the exhibits, which include albino animals you may never see in the wild.

It’s All a Mystery

Glensheen Mansion is a historic site you will definitely want to visit. Built by the Congdon Family in the early 1900s, this 39-room mansion is like a time capsule. Many of the original family’s belongings remain at the mansion. Couples who love mystery and intrigue will enjoy researching the history and visiting the grounds of Glensheen.

Take Time for a Stroll

Anywhere you decide to stroll in Duluth, romance will be in the air while you walk hand in hand. There are several places to choose from, but one of the most popular is the Lakewalk. Spanning over seven miles, this trail takes you along the shores of Lake Superior. You can enjoy shopping along the way or take a moment to reflect at the war memorial. Experience the unique sights of Duluth, like the aerial lift bridge and the beautiful Duluth Rose Garden.
