Outside Our Back Door

The DECC is located on the shores of the largest freshwater lake in the world, Lake Superior.  Our Harbor Side Convention Center overlooks the lake and Aerial Lift Bridge.  With amazing views from the floor to ceiling windows and our roof deck just a stone’s throw away from the harbor, we are spoiled by our magnificent surroundings.  Even on an extremely cold spring day, that beauty is still present.  Yesterday the first ship of the season left under the Aerial Lift Bridge.  With a vantage point from the Harbor Side Convention Center roof deck, we watched the Mesabi Miner leave the harbor and head to Marquette, Michigan, with her cargo of coal.  She will return to Duluth on Saturday, March 23, and reload with iron ore pellets.
