Duluth is one of Atlanta’s favorite suburbs, with a perfect blend of locally-owned small businesses in a historic downtown along with major corporations supplying local professional positions. There is a wide variety of housing options from new-build condominiums and townhomes, to historic bungalows and newer residences in established, charming neighborhood. And, in spite of booming growth over the last decade, Duluth has retained its small-town character, where neighbors enjoy numerous annual festivals and concerts in the Duluth Town Green. Residents and visitors alike flock to the Town Green for Art Week, the Duluth Beer and Wine Festival and seasonal celebrations such as the Fourth of July fireworks extravaganza.
Sidewalks and bike-ways connect many areas of the city, with greenspace and parks for recreation and relaxation. W.P. Jones Park to the southwest includes over 20 acres of athletic facilities, walking trails, picnic areas and playgrounds. Bunten Road Park to the east is home to a 36,000 square foot community center, and includes wooded walking trails in addition to athletic fields. McDaniel Farm Park is a unique outdoor experience, with a replica cotton farm from the early 1900s that illustrates the life of a typical Gwinnett County farm family. Sports are a major part of the Duluth community. Minor league hockey’s Gwinnett Gladiators make their home at Duluth’s Infinite Energy Arena, along with the Georgia Swarm of the National Lacrosse League. The Sugarloaf Country Club golf course hosts an annual Champions Tour golf tournament, and along with Berkeley Hills Country Club just south of town, options abound for locals to get in a round.
Retail options abound in Duluth, from traditional shopping malls like Gwinnett Place and Sugarloaf Mills, to the historic downtown district, featuring art galleries, boutiques, bookstores and more. It’s easy to see why so many people choose tolive, work and play in Duluth!
