Garden tours are May 18 in Duluth

DULUTH -- Feel like exploring the backyards, streams and beautiful landscapes of Duluth?

A garden tour is scheduled for May 18, an event that will feature plantings by some of the city's best gardeners.

The "one of a kind" walking tour will feature nine locations, each with its own unique flavor.

From trickling streams, historic foliage, 100-year-old trees and Southern porches to meandering paths and rolling hills.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. beginning at The Strickland House Museum, 2956 Buford Highway, Duluth. There will be plenty of free parking, and tickets are $25 each. The price includes a shuttle from the Strickland House to the Secret Gardens.

Tickets will be on sale throughout Duluth: at Gwinnett Community Bank, Howard Brothers Hardware, Woody's Nursery, Strickland House Museum, Main Street Merchants and Duluth City Hall.

Proceeds will benefit the Duluth Historical Society.
