Decatur

It’s locally understood that the most popular alternative to moving to the suburbs is moving to Decatur. Arguably one of the best neighborhoods for raising a family, Decatur offers excellent public schools such as Clairemont and Oakhurst Decatur Georgia (8)Elementary School and Decatur High School. Furthermore, the annual Decatur Book Festival is great for kids, teens, and adults alike, offering booths after booths of great reads for all ages. Other annual events geared toward kids include Touch-A-Truck, Easter Egg Hunt on the Square, Green Fest, and Breakfast with Santa. And for all those dog lovers whose kids walk on four legs, Decatur offers three dog parks for Fido to romp
around in (i.e., Adair Dog Park, Oakhurst Dog Park, and Glenlake Dog Park).

The historic Decatur Square, where most of Decatur’s festivals are held, is the perfect place to spend an afternoon or evening. After wandering through the many boutiques and shops that support local artists’ crafts, you must not forget to try one of the many restaurants that offer outstanding food and drinks. In fact, in 2012, Southern Living identified Decatur as one of the Tastiest Towns in the South. Moreover, during summers, many flock to the square to enjoy free concerts and jazz festivals.

Just south of the Decatur Square is an excellent all-female liberal arts university, Agnes Scott College, which was rated as the second most beautiful college campus in the country by the Princeton Review.

Decatur was founded in 1822 and is the oldest city in DeKalb County. Neighborhoods in Decatur include Adair Park, Chelsea, Clairemont Historic District, Decatur Heights, Downtown Decatur, MAK Historic District, Oakhurst, Ponce de Leon Court Historic District, Sycamore Ridge, and Winnona Park. It rates very high as a walkable city, with other options including the Stone Mountain multi-use bike path and a MARTA train stop. Visit and Enjoy!
