Duluth Georgia is located in Gwinnett County approximately 25 miles northeast of Atlanta along Highway 23. It sits on the banks of the Chattahoochee River and is considered part of the Atlanta metro area. The town of Duluth is the second largest city in Gwinnett County with a population of more than 22,000 residents. It has been an important crossroads in the area since the Cherokee Indians first settled here. In the early 1800s, there were no known white settlers in the area that is now the town of Duluth, but in 1818, Gwinnett County was created and the area was opened to settlers. At that time there was only one road in the region, known as Peachtree Road, which was an offshoot of an old Indian trail that ran alongside the bridge south of the Chatahoochee River. It had been constructed during the War of 1812, and today, Peachtree Road is still the most famous road in Georgia. Duluth has experienced rapid growth in the past several years, but has retained its hometown atmosphere and has thus become known as a “suburban oasis.” Tourism is strong in the town of Duluth where annual festivals and special events are held throughout the year. The town is also home to several beautiful parks and recreational opportunities, a 30-acre railway museum and summer concerts and outdoor movies shown on the Town Green on Friday nights. The festive spirit of the townspeople was evident with a showing of “The Wizard of Oz,” where some people dressed up as characters in the movie for entertainment for the children. This is the type of great family fun that is typical in the town of Duluth.

Duluth has a historic downtown district where you can stroll, shop and dine in specialty shops along Main Street and the Town Green. Whether you’re shopping for clothing, furniture, a new home, stained glass, flowers, unique gifts and accessories, downtown Duluth has something for everyone. Many of the buildings feature architecture of the 1900-1930 era, and have been renovated for new businesses. Duluth is widely recognized as a model city for Gwinnett County, with a nice blend of small businesses, entrepreneurial enterprise, major corporations and developers. Its commercial corridor is among Gwinnett County’s busiest. The vitality of Duluth comes from careful planning on the part of the community leaders, and from the camaraderie of its residents.

Some of the attractions in Duluth include the Southeastern Railway Museum, which preserves, restores and operates historical railway equipment. The Duluth Fall Festival, held the last weekend in September, offers more than 250 arts and crafts and food booths, and draws crowds greater than 30,000. Duluth Heritage Days is a chance for local merchants to showcase their businesses and the rich history of their particular establishments. Located near Interstate 85, the Buford Highway, Duluth has easy access to Atlanta and some of Georgia’s best shopping, fine dining and hotels, and other nearby historical and recreational sites.
