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.

I have loved it here! There are plenty of restaurants and shops to go explore, and the diversity here is very welcoming to all people from different backgrounds. My family was exposed to the immense Asian culture nearby.
The schools are simply amazing. All of them are interactive and friendly. And they are really diverse, multiple different people of many different races conjugate at them. The neighbors are really and homely. One time when I was having trouble with my lawnmower my neighbor let me borrow his. Though the only real problem I have is the dogs. Don't get me wrong dogs are great in all, but they're bloody everywhere. I go out to take a walk with my niece, then out of nowhere this dog randomly comes out barking out us, scaring my adorable niece to tears. That's not even the first time this has happened. Though other than the dogs everything else is fine.
