Free Family Events At Duluth Attractions This Summer
What's more fun than playing tourist with the family here at home? Doing it for free! Thanks to a partnership the City of Duluth has cultivated with area family attractions, residents will get the chance to partake in the same sort of stuff that visiting tourists do - but with the "local discount".
The event is being billed as Duluth CommuTSM/Nick Coonity Days and will primarily occur in April and May - although a few of the scheduled attractions will play out later in the summer.
