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 one of the safest cities around Metro Atlanta to reside in. Great people, restaurants, parks and lots of activities for families to enjoy. Town Green is beautiful, with its old style buildings surrounding the park.

The City of Duluth, GA does an outstanding job of promoting patriotism at the local level. The entire city is sprinkled with red, white and blue each Memorial Day and Labor Day and I love looking at the numerous flags with soldiers names as I drive through. This display makes for great photos. I would love to see displays such as this in more cities. Great job Duluth!

My children have spent many hot days in the fountain and the whole family has seen several movies on the big screen while eating dinner on the grass. Duluth is a wonderful place to raise a family.

Over 700 Memorial Markers with flags are placed along the streets and in the Town Green in the City of Duluth for Memorial Day and Veterans Day each year. The flag lined streets are beautiful and touching, reminding us of those who served to protect our freedoms.
