Duluth, Georgia Attractions

Duluth, Georgia Attractions
Duluth, Georgia is a natural gem found just outside the Atlanta perimeter. This small locale helps visitors to escape the hustle, bustle, and prices of the city, while providing many opportunities to commune with nature or delve into the history of a small southern town. Spend the morning hiking, enjoy a leisurely picnic in the shade, or take a tour through the histories of farm life and the Georgia railway system.

W.P. Jones Park

W.P. Jones Parks offers a mile-long hiking trail, giving you a day to spend in the quiet of nature. The trail weaves through tall Georgia pine trees and around a creek, man-made by a local boy scout troop. Pack your own lunch and enjoy it in the picnic area, nestled under large trees to provide shade. If you have children, the park also provides a playground. Check out the restored authentic Norfolk-Southern Railway train caboose, and glimpse a piece of southern history.

McDaniel Farm Park used to be a subsistence farm. Duluth restored it and opened it to the public. Now you can experience daily farm life in the 1930's. The park features guided tours, special events, and over 2 miles of trails that show off the 130-acres of woods, meadows, and streams.

If you are craving a taste of history, fit in an afternoon at the Southeastern Railway Museum. The museum offers historic Pullman cars, steam locomotives, even a ride in a restored caboose attached to antique diesel locomotives. You will see wheels from the passenger train that traveled on "the railroad that went to sea," the business car that took the Olympics to Atlanta in 1996, and the private car that was used by President Warren G. Harding.
