City of Decatur

Decatur, an intown suburb, and the Dekalb County seat changed history and its fate when it said no to being a railroad terminus in 1830. Those rails eventually made their way 5 miles west to what is now the city of Atlanta. But Decatur has no regrets, as Decaturites proudly proclaim, “Decatur: where it’s greater!”

A modern and progressive “Mayberry”, Decatur wins awards for its diversity, inclusion, and for being a visionary city. A highly active and tight-knit community, once every ten years, over 500 residents help chart the course for Decatur’s next decade in the city’s Strategic Vision/Plan.

An idyllic town square, frequently featured regularly in films, sits perfectly at the center of Decatur’s 4.2 miles allowing for easy walkability and access to and all of the city’s distinctive, unique neighborhoods (Westchester, Glenwood Estates, Clairemont Estates, Winnona Park, College Heights, Oakhurst, Great Lakes) Each of these Decatur enclaves boasts charming cottages, craftsman bungalows, and their own award-winning neighborhood schools, where most students and families walk or roll to school. At the city’s center, a high school and middle school (also award-winning) are also walkable.

Between their plethora of festivals, hip bars, unique shops, and James Beard award-winning restaurants, it’s no wonder Decatur folks like to “Keep It In-Decatur.” But if Decaturites want to venture out into nearby Kirkwood, Lake Claire or Druid Hills, or the rest of metro Atlanta, the Marta train runs underneath the city center providing traffic-free travel and stress-free commutes.
