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.

I am proud of Duluth. They are very patriotic and friendly to all.

Twice a year the city honors its service men and women who served in our country's armed forces by putting out crosses and flags. It is a beautiful sight to see all the white crosses and flags all over town.

Several times a year the city has events and concerts that honor both active and retired military. The cross are a very touching reminder of those who served our country and is a very moving sight when they are displayed in and around the city.

I moved several miles about 16 years ago to become part of the Duluth community and have loved it every day since that time. There is always a lot of energy, people ready to step up and volunteer, hard-working entrepreneurs, artists and musicians and many others who contribute to this vibrant community. It is still a place where people on their front porches wave at you when you pass by and no one is a stranger for long!
