Duluth has undergone significant changes from its days as a heavy industrial city to one of booming tourism, technology and science industries. It has endured the harsh realities of being a rust belt city and suffered losses as its population declined along with jobs in the 1980’s and 90’s. Duluth’s resilience and current revitalization is evidenced in new developments that enliven the waterfront and downtown landscape and inspire new industries such as craft beer brewing, sustainable manufactured goods, and a booming aviation sector.
