Duckburg is built on a land owned by Scrooge McDuck, who conned it out of Grandpappy Beagle, who had previously stolen the deed. He leases the land to the city of Duckburg. Scrooge's mansion, McDuck Manor, is located at the edge of Duckburg, whereas his Money Bin is on an island in the marina.
Other notable places in Duckburg include a theme restaurant called Funso's Fun Zone, a dilapidated seaside amphitheater that served as Lena's residence, a junkyard used as a hideout and meeting place for the Beagle Boys, and Doofus Drake's mansion.
Duckburg has a public transport system which includes buses and an underground railway network. Some of the subway tunnels are out of service and currently inhabited by Terra-firmians.
