10 Things to Do in Decatur

If any city in Metro Atlanta is an example of urban renewal and progress, it’s Decatur. Technically a separate city, but looked upon more like an intown neighborhood, Decatur earned the slogan “Where it’s greater” for good reason—some of the city’s best restaurants, bars and schools make a cozy home for themselves in this peaceful area, which manages to embody the best of suburban life (great schools, manicured lawns, beautiful homes) with metropolitan glitz (excellent eateries, boutique shops and bustling nightlife). Downtown Decatur is the heart of the area and the historic Decatur Square is its main artery. Surrounding the square is a melange of locally-owned restaurants, shops and watering holes that lend an electric energy and eclectic spirit to the quaint town.
