Lake Superior is the largest body of freshwater in the United States and one of the most beautiful coastlines to visit. Living in Minnesota, Lake Superior and Duluth are always a great travel option for a weekend getaway or quick road trip! Duluth offers an abundance of camping and lodging options, but in my opinion the Edgewater Hotel and Waterpark is the best place to stay with kids in Duluth!
The Edgewater is the only hotel and waterpark in Duluth! It also happens to be right on the shores of Lake Superior, so it offers some of the prettiest views from rooms with semi-private balconies! During our last stay, we had a Double Queen room with a lake view.
The decor is a little dated, but it is always very clean and the beds are super comfortable. The bathrooms are updated and lovely with nice water pressure and a pullout clothesline to hang up your swimming clothes! We also love that the rooms include a mini-fridge and a microwave.
When you book a room at the Edgewater, you receive wristbands for the waterpark, some free play for the arcade, coupons for your next stay and, my favorite, BOGO drink chips for the bar and coffee shop!
My kids pretty much spend the entire stay inside of the massive indoor waterpark that boasts 2 large waterslides, a lazy river, a hot tub and multiple play areas.
We have stayed at the Edgewater Hotel and Waterpark before and we know why it is the best place to stay with kids in Duluth!
