Duluth puts on a grand fireworks show on Independence Day. Like many revelers, the Aerial Lift Bridge is decked out in red, white, and blue for the occasion. The mood is festive, the lake breeze is invigorating, and the waves crashing into shore complete the experience.
The Aerial Lift Bridge is one of the most-recognized iconic landmarks of Duluth. In a mere 55 seconds, the bridge rises to 138 feet, making it the quickest and biggest lift bridge in the world.
