Where to eat in Duluth, MN

January 3

My favorite thing to do on vacation is eat!  Imagine that:)  I will plan the day around what & where I am eating.  Exploring Minnesota is so easy when you have social media.  I use Instagram to search restaurants.  I love that I can see pictures of the dishes.   My last trip to Duluth was in June.  I had an Instagram post where I asked what your favorite restaurant was.  Here are your responses:

I will only be in Duluth 1 night.  We are stopping there on our way to Lutsen, MN.   My husband is riding in a bike race.  We got an amazing VRBO house with another family.  As I am getting ready for the weekend, here are the things I am packing:

Snow shoes, Skiis and ice skates!  I am all about the outdoor activities this weekend. 

I am also planning on what to Eat & Drink!!!  

I am trying to eat healthy so I have to meal plan like crazy!!! Luckily we are staying in a house so we will be able to cook for ourselves most meals.  I am currently doing the Whole30 diet....yes, I know I am not supposed to drink.  BUT,  I am on vacation!!!  I am super excited to make a nice Hot Toddy!
