5 Best Places To View The Duluth Fireworks

Saturday is the 4th of July and Duluth has the best fireworks show in the Midwest, shot over the Harbor, the pyro extravaganza can be seen from multiple angles around town so choose wisely and Happy Independence Day! Here’s a few of my suggestions.


The Duluth Lake walk is one of the best places to see the fireworks, but you will have to get there early if you want a prime spot. You can enjoy vendors on the side, find better places to park and just sit along the water, depending on where you watch. With so many of the best places to eat close to so much of the Lake walk, this is a good place to spend the day.


Stretching 25 miles along the brow of Duluth, most tourists still don’t know about it, but the locals do, and this is prime viewing for birds, the lake and especially the fireworks. Pull up a curb for yourself or sit on the rocks. The great part about Skyline Parkway is when the fireworks are over, you can come back and find one of the many trails and explore more. You should also get there early and bring some snacks.


Bring a little bag with some goodies, a blanket and a couple of cold drinks and you are set up with some prime viewing of the Duluth Fireworks sitting on the rocks overlooking the city.


What is better than being on the lake, you have the fireworks exploding with the Aerial Lift Bridge in the backdrop. If you know someone with a boat or own one, get in it and enjoy.


Bayfront Festival Park is home to a variety of events and activities throughout the year. In the winter months, there is ice skating, a holiday lighting display, and the annual Warmer by the Lake event. In the summer, enjoy an exciting array of festivals that feature music and food. Year-round, Play front playground is open to children of all ages. It also hosts all of the 4th of July events. Why wouldn’t it be the number one place to see the fireworks, they shoot them off right above you and the Duluth/Superior Symphony Orchestra plays while you watch.
