(BPT) - Sometimes you just need to get away from it all, take some time to recharge your batteries and explore something completely new. While you may think such a getaway is cost and time prohibitive, it doesn’t have to be.

The city of Duluth, Minnesota, is just a short road trip away and perhaps a destination you have yet to explore. Whether you’re a family of four looking for a weekend getaway or a senior seeking a mid-week adventure, there’s plenty to see, do and love in Duluth. Here are five reasons to make Duluth your next getaway.

You’ll be glad you did.

* Life by the lake. Lake Superior — the world’s largest freshwater lake — is central to life in Duluth and it can be a central part of your trip, too. From watching a 1,000-foot freighter arriving in port under the historic Aerial Lift Bridge to chartering a fishing boat, you’ll be able to find many ways to make the lake a part of your adventure.

* Entertaining arts. Duluth, a destination city for <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">arts and entertainment</a>? You bet. The Bentleyville Tour of Lights is a holiday tradition and the nation’s largest free walk-through lighting display. The Duluth Art Institute offers a chance to broaden your horizons, and if you enjoy live performances, be sure to visit the Duluth Playhouse or the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra.

* Delicious food. Duluth and delicious dining go hand in hand. The city’s restaurant scene has exploded and continues to grow. From fine dining to fast casual, vegetarian to carnivore, there’s something for everyone in Duluth. And if drink is more to your liking, the city is flush with breweries, best experienced on a brewery tour, of course.

* Activities. Duluth is known for its hockey history, making it a great place to catch a game, but perhaps you want to have your own adventure? No problem. In the snowy months, the city’s slopes and trails are best explored by ski or dog sled, and in the warmer months, you’ll find mountain bikers and hikers throughout the city’s network of trails. If you like to get out on the water, you can kayak on Lake Superior or whitewater raft on the St. Louis River.

* One-of-a-kind historical attractions. Duluth has a rich history you’ll love exploring. If you’re a music buff, Bob Dylan was born in Duluth and spent his first six years of life in the city — you can see his childhood home and other significant landmarks. The historic Congdon estate, Glensheen, is another must-visit and if you want to delve deeper into the city’s history, you can even visit a replica logging camp.
