Duluth does not have a Catholic high school. It did last (to the best of my knowledge) before Cathedral became Marshall.

However, it does have several Catholic elementary schools - or at least had them when I was in 5th and 6th grade (1997-1999). I remember St. James (West Duluth), Holy Rosary (East Duluth), St. Rose (Proctor...my alma mater), Queen of Peace (Cloquet), and I think another or two.

Is the Summit School still around?

1. Which city do you like more??
Rochester by far, its my favorite city in the state along with Mankato outside of the Twin Cities.
2. Which city has a brighter future??
Rochester, no brainer.
3. What are some major differences between the two cities??
The topography and the locations between the 2, Duluth is on Lake Superior and Rochester is more flat and in corn land and closer to Iowa.
4. Which city has better neighborhoods??
The best neighborhood in Rochester is(just my opinion) better then just about every neighborhood in Duluth, though Duluth has a larger quantity of cool and unique interesting neighborhoods.
5. Which city has a better downtown??
I like them both Equally
6. Which city is prettier? (Nature and man made)
While Duluth has a stunning and unique location on Lake Superior, im going to say Rochester
7. Which is more recognizable on a regional (midwest) and national scale?
Hmm, don't know. I will say Rochester will in the future because it's rapidly growing and the Mayo Clinic.

I have never been to Rochester (well I passed through) but I have a feeling that it's a very cool city. All of what I've heard and researched, it seems pretty great. I do however think that Duluth and Rochester are two very different cities. Duluth's average temperature is 47 degrees while Rochester's is 53. Duluth is a very blue collar town, while is Rochester seems to be much more white collar. Topographically the two seem to be opposites. Both towns are seemingly 'blue' as are their counties - Olmsted and St. Louis.

Maybe it's just me, but it seems like Rochester comes off as really bland. Everything is nondescript - generic office towers downtown, big-box stores, suburban-style homes. It just seems really bland and vanilla -- great economy, but still bland. I've never been to Duluth, so I can't say.

If I had to live on the east side of the state, I'd go for Winona or Northfield.

As someone who lives near San Jose and is from Minnesota, I'd have to say this might be the best comparison of Duluth and Rochester.

Default About Rochester

Isn't it in the only county in MN without a natural lake? Just wondering.

The other thing you can consider is the distance to twin cities. A lot of people in Rochester get off work and drive to twin cities (60-80 miles away) to watch a show or have a nice dinner. It takes twice long if you travel from Duluth.

The other nice thing is, that if you live in Duluth you don' t HAVE to leave town and drive 60-80 miles to watch a show or have a nice dinner

The nice thing about Rochester is you don't have to leave town do to those things, but if you want to go to the Cities to do them, it's only 60-80 miles.
