Bob Dylan's first home

On May 24, 1941, Robert Allen Zimmerman was born right here in Duluth. If you would like to see (at least from the outside) the house where Bob Dylan spent the first six years of his life, you can drive by it at 519 North 3rd Avenue East. Bob and his family lived in the upstairs apartment.

Vegan? Hungry? In Duluth?

Are you looking for restaurants with vegan entrees on the menu? Pizza Luce offers many vegan options with a choice of two vegan cheeses for their pizzas. (This vegan can’t get enough of their Pizza Athena with Rinotta.) The Burrito Union has a couple of vegan items on the menu, and so does At Sara’s Table Chester Creek CafĂ©. Over on the West Side the Duluth Grill is vegan friendly, and if you don’t want to venture far from Canal Park you can get a hummus-veggie sandwich at Amazing Grace. Duluth also has two Whole Foods Co-op stores (not the corporate chain Whole Foods Market – Duluth’s came first) and both have deli bars serving breakfast through dinner with vegan options.
