About Duluth, GA
Less than a half hour’s drive from Atlanta is the city of Duluth in Gwinnett County. The city was named after Daniel Greysolon, Sieur du Lhut, who was the first known European explorer of the area that later became known as Duluth, Minnesota, which is also Duluth’s sister city. Duluth today is recognized as a model city for Gwinnett County and despite phenomenal growth has managed to retain its small-town charm through the years, bolstered by a strong community spirit that is echoed in their motto, “Capture the spirit of good living.”
