Located in the heart of Gwinnett County, Duluth is a suburb of Atlanta. Although the town is close to Atlanta it offers visitors a far more relaxed suburban feel and plenty of outdoor green spaces for recreation. One of the town’s premier attractions is the sprawling Southeastern Railway Museum, a must-see for families. To get out and about in the great outdoors you can visit the McDaniel Farm Park or Bunten Rd Park, both of which have scenic trails. You can attend a music concert or hockey game at the Infinite Energy Stadium or visit the 2 Smith Art Gallery to see works by local and national artists. There are several restaurants to visit when you’ve worked up an appetite. Certain attractions may be temporarily closed or require advance reservations. Some restaurants are currently offering pickup only. Hours/availability may have changed.

Sugo is without doubt one of the most popular restaurants in the Duluth area. The restaurant is family run and serves the kind of genuine home-style Italian food that your nonna would have made, had you been Italian. The menu features an excellent variety of appetizers (including their legendary Meatball al Sugo), salads and entrees. Their pasta dishes are house-made from scratch and are hand to beat – regular guests rave about Aunt Lena’s Chicken and the Scallops Piccata. You can accompany your meal with a delicious wine from their large range of wines served by the glass. The dessert menu is also amazing and well worth the additional kilojoules.
