Living in Duluth

There are many pros to living in Duluth, GA. Duluth has a kind of small town ambiance, but it's so close to Atlanta that you still get to take advantage of its big city amenities. That includes amazing attractions like the World of Coca-Cola, the CNN Center, Centennial Park (site of the 1996 Olympics), and the birthplace of Martin Luther King, Jr. Atlanta also boasts some great professional sports teams, like the Atlanta Falcons of the NFL, the Atlanta Hawks of the NBA, and the MLB's Atlanta Braves.

But living in Duluth does have its drawbacks. Summers can get awfully toasty and humid, for one. And while Atlanta and Duluth are home to numerous Fortune 500 companies, the area suffers from higher than average unemployment.

Things to do in Duluth

There are plenty of great parks in and around Duluth, equipped with great playground structures, hiking and walking trails, and home to regularly held community events. McDaniel Farm Park is fantastic if you’re looking for somewhere to bring the kids. There’s a 1930’s-style farm, blacksmith shed, and other historic sites to check out.

The Southeastern Railway Museum is another fun place that's worth exploring. The museum is home to both antique and operational diesel locomotives, plus a railway car used by President Warren G. Harding.

Downtown Duluth offers boutique shopping, restaurants, and plenty of events and festivals, including an amphitheater used for concerts. Events include Food Truck Fridays, which helps residents experience the best food around, the New Year’s Extravaganza, which ends in a fantastic fireworks display, and Art Week, an 8-day event showcasing the best artists around with demonstrations, events for kids, and tons of local eats.

Even sports fans are in luck. Duluth is home of the Atlanta Gladiators, a local minor league hockey team. But things get even more exciting when you make the short drive over to Atlanta. Not only is the city home to its own MLB, NFL, and NBA teams, college football fans can catch the SEC Championship and Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl here every year. And golf fans will be happy to know that the The Tour Championship is held annually at the nearby East Lake Golf Club.

Atlanta also has some great places to take the family, like the Georgia Aquarium, Zoo Atlanta, and the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.

Or just spend the day in Duluth, drifting down the local river in your inner tube, while sipping on your favorite beverage.

Tips for Renting in Duluth

Ready to head on down to Duluth? We bet! But first, let's take a minute to get familiar with the local tenant laws.

Once the lease period ends, your landlord is legally able to increase rent as much as they see fit – Georgia does not have rent control laws.
