Grandma’s Boxcar Open for the Season

Canal Park Favorite Serves Ice Cream, Hot Dogs, Sandwiches

DULUTH, Minn. – Another sign of summer: In Canal Park, the Boxcar Ice Cream Machine is back open for the season.

You probably recognize the small business. It’s right next to the historic Grandma’s Restaurant.

Ice cream, hot dogs, popcorn, and sandwiches bought right out the doors of this old boxcar.

“I mean, it’s just kind of unique,” says Max Nachtscheim, a Boxcar employee. “You don’t really see a big old train box anywhere serving ice cream and other food. So it’s pretty cool.”

Great for grabbing a scoop of ice cream and watching the ships come into the harbor.
