On top of being a Most Patriotic Town finalist, Duluth has won multiple City of Excellence awards and the Best of Gwinnett award in 2010. Founded in 1821 as a part of Gwinnett County, the citizens of Duluth take as much pride in the town's rich history as they do in its progress, hence the motto "Pride in Old and New."

Considered a suburb of Atlanta, Duluth has access to big city benefits while maintaining a small town feel. The town has retained this small town feel even with its phenomenal growth over the years. Duluth is also a designated Tree City because of the town's constant efforts to achieve an eco-friendly lifestyle. Duluth ranks 26th on Forbes' list of America's Best Places To Move.

The town is known for its variety of restaurants, namely the local favorite Rexall Grill, which is attached to Rexall Drugs. After a bite here, head to Crave Pie Studio for their famous Red White and Blue Pie. Don’t miss the Southeastern Railway Museum to see over 90 pieces of retired railroad equipment and to learn about Duluth's railway history.

Among the abundance of year round events, visitors will enjoy the Summer Stage concert series and the annual Duluth Music Festival each August, the No Reason Block Party, Duluth Staycation, and festivities for nearly every holiday. For more on this patriotic town, read locals' reviews.

Duluth is a city that has a rich history but is not afraid to embrace the present and prepare for the future.

Every time I drive or walk through Duluth I am proud to be a member of this community! The town is beautiful and charming. There are many wonderful things that Duluth offers throughout the year from movies on the green to the amazing fall festival, but there is nothing more special than seeing the crosses and flags lining the streets throughout the year in tribute to those brave men and women that served in the armed forces.

I am always amazed at the way our town honors and supports the military. The monuments, flags on holidays, special events...it reflects the heart and attitude of our little town that honoring those that have seved to make us, and keep us free is a top priority. I am proud to live in Duluth.

Love Duluth. It's a safe, friendly and tranquil little town in Metro Atlanta. Definitely the best of both worlds.
