Around Town

Voted Outside Magazine’s 2014 “Best Town Ever”, Duluth overlooks Lake Superior and minutes away from world-class recreational and cultural activities. UMD is a great “base camp” to explore all the area has to offer.

Area Weather

Average high temperatures are 66°F in June and 75°F in July.. The wide expanse of Lake Superior causes the “lake effect” with cooler summer temperatures and warmer winter temperatures than the surrounding area. It’s truly “cooler by the lake”.
