Children love coming to the Park Point Marina Inn, Duluth’s Award-Winning Waterfront hotel. It is located just 1 block away from the Park Point Beach which offers miles of sand beach for swimming and sandcastle building. The resort’s Breakwater Pier Walk allows children to watch ships enter and leave the harbor while enjoying a picnic. The United States Coast Guard Station is right next door to the Park Point Marina Inn and its 225 foot ice cutter ship, the Alder, which always enchants children. Bicycles are available for rent from the Concierge Service Center and are a popular choice for going down the Lakewalk. Ladder golf toss and horseshoes provide outdoor sports entertainment. Ice cream is always available in the 24-hour gift shop to make sure all of the children, ages 5-75 are happy campers. They’ll be able to watch migratory birds and harbor wildlife, and possibly see our resident duck family who swim in our patio side pond, on occasion. Exhilarating family afternoon and evening sailing charters are available for the entire family 6 days a week. Half-day and full-day charter fishing trips are also a great family outing that leaves from the hotel docks daily. Canoe, kayak and paddle boat rental is available only 2 blocks away.

Our indoor family recreation center offers an indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, and arcade games to splash around in or play on.

The complimentary evening resort shuttle will drop you off in the summer right next to the Port Town Trolley (June-August). This is a kid friendly inexpensive way to put a smile on your child’s face as they ride around in a historic looking street car for 50 cents. On the trolley you can get dropped off in front of the train depot, Bayfront Park, a Coney Island restaurant, or an iron ore ship to tour and delight all children. We have a direct shuttle to the Jingle Bus and Bentleyville every December. This is an all-time children’s fantasy dream event that every child should experience once in their lives, whether with their parents or grandparents.

Children can cast a fishing line with a bobber from the Breakwater Pier Walk and fish for walleye, sunfish, and crappies.

For breakfast we have children’s favorites such as fruit whirls cereal, hot chocolate, Hershey’s syrup, donut holes and waffles with butter, strawberries, and maple syrup.

Cross over the bridge from ordinary to Duluth’s Award-Winning Waterfront Hotel and have your children discover our resort right in Duluth’s backyard.
