wamer27, we are looking for a cooler climate. neither of us like the heat anymore and Duluth looks beautiful and I want to live by a large body of water. Michigan looks too commercialized. Minnesota, atleast the pics we have seen of Duluth looks like God's country. Majestic and glorious. So back to bears for a minute. If they wanted all over the place, do they try and get in your house. If a cat is sitting by an open window, will the bear try and kill the cat. What about coyotes? We want to live in a cooler and yes, colder climate but not put our lives in jeopardy. Maybe that is asking too much...

We’ve had bears in our yard with no issues. This was both when we lived on the north shore and now that we live in town (just this spring). We have a pug that we regularly walk with a leash - no problem.

Bears are quite common when they “wake up” in the spring and when they get ready to hibernate. They’re looking for food in both instances, but it’s of the opportunistic variety: bird feeders, trash cans, etc. Bear “attacks” are more common with brown bears - aka grizzlies - but those are mostly out west. In MN we have black bears, for which “attacks” are uncommon.

Beenaroundabit...thank you. Now that spring is really blooming, we have to live in an area with several months for flowers. We don't think Duluth will have blooms long enough for us. From lilacs, which are past their prime now in central Illinois, to hardy hibiscus that are yet to bloom, which I do not think would tolerate the winters, we are going to mark Duluth off the retirement destination and move it to the vacation destination list. Thank you so much and thanks to everyone.
