‘Get Downtown’ Week in Duluth: Answers to the Visual Scavenger Hunt – Duluth News Tribune

DULUTH — Get Downtown Week was scheduled for April 25-30, with more than 30 different businesses in and around downtown Duluth offering discounts to help attract shoppers, diners and drinkers. To add a little challenge to your downtown adventure, we took 10 photos at several of the participating businesses. Did you find where they were taken?

If you’ve named all 10, you’ve cracked the code to answer this question: What is the best cure for spring fever?

To complete the answer, write the letter “M” (it’s a gift), then add the third letter of the name of each business pictured, in order. Spaces do not count as letters and the same company can be represented more than once. Remember that “downtown” is defined quite broadly for this promotion: here is the list we used to select these locations.

When you’re ready for the answers, scroll down for the reveal.
