What Bert Has To Say About Duluth Metro Area

Duluth is the world’s third largest inland port located about as far as possible from an ocean on the North American continent. Superior, Wisconsin, sits to the south on the other side of the harbor. Shipping, mainly grain and, to a lesser extent, iron ore, is an important part of the economy. Some of the former heavy industry is gone today but the town still retains a decidedly commercial and industrial character.
