Whether it’s by bike, kayak, or pint glass, the way visitors (and residents) explore Duluth takes on many forms these days. And Dave Grandmaison, co-owner of The Duluth Experience has a little something to do with that.

“There was a niche to be filled,” said Grandmaison, who started the tour company in 2012 with a few friends.

On this week’s podcast, he shares with us how the Duluth Experience came to be, what types of tours they offer and what to expect when you book a tour with them.

What we are into this week: Glensheen Mansion play, bean bag toss, handkerchief, and the Beach Boys.

EXTRA: News Tribune outdoors reporter Sam Cook recently wrote about local tour companies and shared a story Dave shares with us in this week’s podcast. Check it out here.
