With 2020 finding the Northland enjoying one of warmest years on record, and 2021 starting off mild, places like Brighton Beach have remained popular destinations for locals and tourists alike.

With Brighton Beach temporarily unavailable, there are still plenty of things to do to outside in the Northland.  For example, Duluth's Bayfront Rink opened to the public on January 9.  The rink is open from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 4:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.  While the warming house is not open, there is a bonfire available to help keep warm. There are also concessions available on the weekends.
