I am moving to Duluth, MN! I've never stepped foot in Minnesota, let alone Duluth. What advice can you give me?

Most pressing to me right now is information about housing. I'm looking to rent an apartment. Are there neighborhoods you'd recommend? Neighborhoods you'd advise I stay away from? Are there any (very close by) towns I should be look at, rather than Duluth? Are there specific sorts of issues that should concern me, when looking at apartments in Duluth? I'm also interested in more general advice, not just about housing: is there anything else I should be thinking about, in regards to moving to Duluth?
An important fact about me is that I'm from California. I've never lived some place that gets anywhere near as cold as Minnesota. Please keep that in mind when giving me advice: I'm new to the whole "it's so cold you may die" thing. I'm new to the whole "your heating bill might be TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS" thing. I'm new to the whole "your pipes might freeze!" thing. I'm not really sure how much the cold and the snow affects how you live -- please do inform me.
