This article is about my Duluth Road Trip where I got to explore one of my favorite cities in Minnesota.
Hyundai is generously sponsoring the trip by providing a week-long test drive of the all-new completely redesigned 2022 Hyundai Tucson. While the article is sponsored by Hyundai the views expressed are my own.
Duluth is located about two and a half hours from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. It is a fun drive especially when you get to be in a shiny new silver 2022 Hyundai Tucson.
Hyundai Tucson Features
For the road trip the features that I most loved were the fact that it had cooling seats. The temperatures in Minnesota have been in the 90-degree range so the cooling leather seats really made the trip comfortable.
I also loved that it features high-definition cameras that surround the car as well as a large touch screen display. The cameras give excellent visibility when I had to back up as it offers a high definition 360-degree view of the car. In addition, when you turn, you are presented with a view to the side on the dashboard that helps so that you know that the lane is clear in addition to the side mirrors that had a good view as well.
I also enjoyed the fact that the Tucson has a very large window above you that you can open to bring in lots of natural light in the car.
My favorite feature of the Tucson though is the fact that it offers Apply Car Play and XM Radio. I was able to text using my voice while I drove the car and the Tucson’s dynamic voice recognition worked perfectly. I also could listen to my favorite station the entire way to Duluth using the XM Radio!

Going to Duluth is so much fun because it is a great foodie city, and it offers awesome views from Lake Superior.
Check out the video I made to highlight some of my favorite places.
There is an iconic lift bridge that you can watch huge container ships and barges go out to Lake Superior.
I love going for a walk at Canal Park on the lake walk to take in the good views.
The foodie in me loves going to the following restaurants each time I go:
I love going to Duluth Grill. They offer comfort food made with natural ingredients that they grow right at the restaurant in their gardens.
Try the Beet Lemonade and Red Flannel Hash
Bent Paddle Brewery
My favorite brewery in Duluth is Bent Paddle. You can try some of their beers while sitting on the deck or you can also buy the beer in stores around the state as well as at many restaurants in the Duluth area. I love the Coffee Stout Beer that they did in collaboration with the Duluth Coffee Company. It is Amazing.
For dinner make sure you go to OMC Smokehouse! OMC offers legit BBQ in a fun environment. You can even have Bent Paddle Beer with your dinner. Or order take out from OMC while you are at Bent Paddle and they will deliver it to you!!
I ordered the ribs and pulled pork which was served with some amazing BBQ sides! Both dishes were incredible and I would definitely recommend them. The BBQ is legit amazing.
OMC is rated as the 2nd best restaurant in Duluth according to TripAdvisor! I sure did enjoy it!
While those are just a few foodie spots, there are awesome places throughout the city. Check out the TripAdvisor to see reviews of all the great places in Duluth.
Duluth is an awesome city to visit. I know you will love coming here as well.
