Sitting just 30 minutes from Atlanta and directly on the lakefront is the exciting Infinite Energy Center, which hosts concerts, sporting events, theater performances, exhibitions, and conventions every weekend and most weekdays. The Infinite Energy Center accomplishes being able to hold so many events because the campus has a variety of venues, including an arena, a theater, meeting rooms, an exhibit hall, and a ballroom.
The Center is home to The Atlanta Gladiators hockey team and the Georgia Swarm lacrosse team; the Center also hosts an array of concerts from famous musicians such as Justin Timberlake. Just take a look at the list of upcoming events, and you know you will not want to miss out on going!

It is always great to visit a museum while in a new city so you can discover more about the history of different places. While at the Southeastern Railway Museum, which occupies 35 acres, not only can you view locomotives and historical railway collections, but you can also take a ride on the museum train, on a 1,500-foot track. In addition to the historical train collection, there are also historical cars, taxi cabs, and buses for viewing. The attraction is reasonably priced at only $10 for adults and is a fun daytime activity that will allow you to save money for other pursuits in Duluth.
Kurt’s Euro Bistro
Voted the best steak in Gwinnett County 2017, Kurt’s Euro Bistro serves European dishes with fresh ingredients. The bistro offers live entertainment and special dining events, such as Easter Brunch and Mother’s Day Brunch.
The menu ranges from more inexpensive choices such as the soups and salads to the more expensive bistro specialties and steaks. While it offers all types of European cuisine, the main focus of the place is German cuisine along with a beer & wine list. The Bistro opens at 4:30 PM and closes by 9 or 10:30 PM every night, making it the perfect dinner spot after a day of exploring Duluth.
According to Allie Blackham, a local travel writer, “Duluth, Georgia offers a small town feel near Atlanta.” In addition to the three attractions listed above, Duluth also offers town festivals throughout the year. To make sure you do not miss out on the attractions and charm of Duluth, be sure to book a hotel in town. The hotels are affordable and will allow you to visit more attractions in Duluth.
