Wanted or not: Northern Minnesota a top destination for visitors this weekend
July 1, 2020
DULUTH – After a muted kickoff to the region's tourism season over Memorial Day, the Fourth of July weekend will likely see the strongest surge of summer visitors yet.
Northern Minnesota is one of the top trending Airbnb destinations nationwide going into the holiday weekend, with searches up nearly 25% over last year and available bookings quickly approaching zero.
Area hotels are also starting to fill up as travel continues to rebound, with a season-high 70% capacity reported in Duluth over what would have been Grandma's Marathon weekend in June.
