Beeping cesspool of construction. No one lives on Lake Superior, in a remote, blue collar town limited with $10-$15/hr jobs, to listen to beeping construction. It’s a live off the land culture. Unique opportunity for small businesses instead of franchises. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets over the lake, if you can get an apt that is clean, has laundry, and a lake view. But birds, nature are scared away by the beeping, noisy cesspool of construction. Social support is directed towards small business and homeless. In order to support predominantly male workforce of beeping cesspool of construction workers. Do not work at maurices, I was relocated and fired at will, they don’t hire from within the town, but rather hire from outside those more qualified to save their jobs, use you to do the work, fire you, to pay for their male workforce of beeping cesspool of construction.
Public schools do not pay for their own sports and afterschool.

Duluth is a fantastic city to live in. It has adventure, kind people, and great food! With it being a decent size town it has a feeling of small town, you get to know so many people and connect easily with others. There is tones of our door thing to be seen such as the lake, hiking, snow showing, paddle boarding, and much more! There are plenty of collages to chose from and each has a wonderful essence to it! The breweries and food is one of a kind!
So many outdoor activities! Everywhere you go, you can see people taking advantage of this aspect. So many beautiful beaches in a wonderful community!
