Making the Most of Bentleyville
The Bentleyville Tour of Lights is located at the Bayfront Festival Park, near downtown Canal Park. Each season is a little different depending on dates, but typically Bentleyville begins its season in mid-November and ends December 26th, opening every single night from 5 pm to 10 pm (9 pm on Sundays). With thousands of visitors every single night, there's plenty of tips we have for first time visitors (all listed below) - and it's important for you to decide whether a trip to Duluth is worth it for a free light show or if paying $20 per adult to stay closer to the Twin Cities and enjoy light shows like Glow Holiday Festival or Sam's Christmas Village is better for you and your family.
If you're looking for an epic holiday experience consider staying at the Pier B Resort, which overlooks Bentleyville and has their own private shuttle that takes you there!
Our Best Tips for Visiting Bentleyville
Our Honest Review of Bentleyville
We've been to Bentleyville 5 times in the past 8 years, making it a pretty solid holiday tradition in our household. (That is, until we moved to Alaska which made it a little harder to visit.) However, on our most recent visit just the other day, we were reminded of how much we loved Bentleyville and why we were so eager to visit every holiday season. Not only is it fun to interact with all the people you're crowded in with, but everyone is in good spirits - visitors and staff alike. The lights themselves are on a whole other level (let's be honest with over 5 million of them why wouldn't they be) and although the displays don't really change from year to year, it's still an exciting overstimulation of a gathering of the best light display in the state. To be completely honest, if you've never visited before, then we 100% recommend visiting Bentleyville - and if you've already visited in the past then chances are it's already part of your yearly family tradition!
