Centrally located in the heart of DeKalb County, Decatur is close to practically everything in metro Atlanta. We invite you to think of Decatur as your very own hometown away from home.
Start your visit at our walkable, historic downtown square at the intersection of Clairemont and Ponce de Leon Avenues. Decatur is a destination in itself for our critically acclaimed restaurants, and storefront boutiques. At night, music lovers head for the listening room at Eddie’s Attic where the Indigo Girls, Sugarland, Shawn Mullins and John Mayer played in their early days and still drop by for surprise visits. Live music of all genres can be found at numerous other venues in downtown Decatur and Oakhurst Village just to the south.
Family fun for all kinds of families is readily available in Decatur in the form of outdoor concerts in spring and fall; kid-friendly events and festivals; city parks and pools; bike trails; and popular shops that cater to kids.
Our tech-friendly downtown has municipal wi-fi widely available so it's easy to stay connected with the world from a sidewalk café table.
