I've been living here since 2009, and I will say that Duluth is very enjoyable. It has a very decent public education system, with the schools doing a god job at teaching the kids. Additionally, there are a lot of stores such as Walmart, Target, Home Depot, etc. So as long as you have a car, shopping for necessities will not be an issue. Additionally, there are even places where you can go to have fun! Sugarloaf hills isn't too far away, and theres also Regal Cinema and Dave and Busters within a 10-20 minute drive. The community there is also very diverse! There is just so much to experience in a suburb, it is actually kind of crazy. Moreover, the living costs here are not too bad as long as you just find the right place for the right price. Don't worry, there are many places for you to settle down. The only downsides are that You just can't go anywhere without car, and that the minimum wage is like $8 an hour. Other than that, Duluth is a very suitable place for people to live.

I personally love Duluth. I have lived here my whole life and I consider it to be a big part of my life. Downtown Duluth is one of my favorite places to hang out with my friends because it's close to home and there is a variety of stuff to do there. The Fall Festival that is held on the last weekend every September is pretty great, too. I have gone almost every year since I was little and it's a good way for my parents and I to spend time together. Almost all of the people I have met have been very nice and my neighbors are all very friendly. I feel safe in this town and with the people that live here. I'm so glad that I've grown up here!
Just moved to Duluth from the North a year ago. We wanted to settle down somewhere in the suburbs of Atlanta and didn’t have any idea where. We chose Duluth to start which wasn’t a permanent dececision but with its booming development, impressive downtown organizations and events, feeling of safety, and overall ammenities for our money we just don’t want to move anywhere else. I see home prices rising and affordability might not last for that long because it continues to get nicer and nicer. We love it hear! Duluth continues to impress me and the mayor really seems to have her eye on the prize and it makes us excited about all we can enjoy here.
