With the sprawling city of Atlanta bordering it on two sides, Decatur is a city that refuses to become anything other than a small town. It is diverse, open-minded and even a little arty. Sometimes mistaken for an intown neighborhood of Atlanta but it is very much its own entity.
Older Than Atlanta
In the 1830s, the Western and Atlantic Railroad wanted to make Decatur its southernmost stop, but the citizens declined. The railroad then decided to found a new town to the west. That town is Atlanta. So, Decatur is older and even though occupied by Union troops during the Civil War, it has managed to maintain its historical areas.
Today, it is a lovely residential city and a great place to live. Families love the excellent schools and student at Emory or Agnes Scott College love the availability of cool shopping and nightlife.
Beer Tasting in the Park
You will discover that Decatur offers so much for a small town. The DeKalb Farmer's Market is a major local attraction as well as a hot spot for tourists. Virtually every kind of food product is available and employees speak many different languages.
The performing arts have four good venues with one of the most interesting ones being the PushPush Theatre which hosts 300 events per year. The Star Light Six drive-in movie theatre is a modernized version of the old style way of watching movies.
The tree lined streets make for wonderful running and biking, and golf courses are easy to find too. Once in your Decatur apartment, you'll also want to check out all the local festivals which take place each year. There are book festivals, bluegrass, arts and even a beer tasting one.
A Good Food Vibe
There are outstanding locally owned restaurants in Decatur. You won't find many chain food type places here. Most restaurants are concentrated in the downtown area and some to the north so wherever your Decatur apartment is located, you won't be far from good ones.
The Eurasia Bistro is one of the town favorites with its Thai fusion style cuisine. The Watershed is an all time favorite. It's pricey but people rave about the food. For real southern cooking, try Maddy's Rib and Blues Joint. You will not be disappointed with the food or the vibe.
Sunday Tea Dances
The Brick Store is a great place for meeting new people. It's a pub type atmosphere where good conversation is easy. Paris Decatur is the place to go for music - seven days a week including a tea dance on Sundays. You'll want to get settled in your Decatur apartment so you can get out and start enjoying all this small city has to offer.
