There is no end to the romantic opportunities you will find in Duluth and at our resort. We believe in romance. We embrace it and everything it stands for. Always remember, for good luck to toast the infamous cheek to cheek plaque in our lounge. Banned in 1920 at the Duluth Boat Club, the cheek to cheek is now alive and well at the Park Point Marina Inn and Resort. We encourage everyone to dance cheek to cheek once in a while, and to enjoy some romantic activities no matter what time of year you visit. Cross over the bridge from ordinary and do some cheek to cheek dancing.
