Duluth is a fantastic city to live in. It has adventure, kind people, and great food! With it being a decent size town it has a feeling of small town, you get to know so many people and connect easily with others. There is tones of our door thing to be seen such as the lake, hiking, snow showing, paddle boarding, and much more! There are plenty of collages to chose from and each has a wonderful essence to it! The breweries and food is one of a kind!

Duluth is an excellent city to live in. There is always something happening. Sense of community is really strong. There are people of all walks of life. The scenery is beautiful- there is nothing like walking along the shore of Lake Superior. The hills are not great in the winter, but you learn to drive in them, or get snow tires! I wish that there were more companies with room for growth. It seems hard to get a high ranking position in a well known company.
Welcoming tourist town with tons to see! A wide variety of eateries, breweries, and bars. Plenty to do from shopping in the Miller Hill area, walking lakeside in Canal Park or doing some bar hopping in the new Lincoln Park area.
