More Holiday Magic in Duluth

You definitely don’t want to miss the chance to stroll through Bentleyville’s incredibly beautiful displays.  You’ll create memories that last for a lifetime. But, there’s much more to do in Duluth during the holidays. A trip to Duluth this winter wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Glensheen Mansion for the holidays. They offer special Christmas tours, including a special candlelight tour in the evenings. It’s the perfect opportunity to see all 25 impeccably decorated Christmas trees, along with their friendly 25 elves, hidden throughout the mansion.

In the kitchen of Glensheen Mansion, you’ll also get a taste of Clara Congdon’s very own shortbread cookie recipe, which is made by the local favorite, Johnson’s Bakery, just for the holidays. Glensheen also hosts the Duluth Winter Village each year, which is a festive outdoor village on the grounds of Glensheen.  It’s the perfect place for some holiday shopping.
