AAA Editor Notes
Minnesota Point (Park Point) is at the end of Minnesota Ave. This narrow, 7-mile-long peninsula, which separates Lake Superior from Superior Bay, is reputed to be the world's largest freshwater sandbar. Points of interest along the stretch include 6 miles of beaches, four marinas, an RV campground and a lighthouse; there are also excellent views of the Duluth harbor. Near the end of the point is Sky Harbor Airport; just beyond it is the 18-acre Minnesota Point Pine Forest Scientific and Natural Area.
