• Decatur has been referred to as "Mayberry meets Berkeley" numerous times because it is a small town (4-square-miles) with a diverse population. Due to its excellent schools and walkability, Decatur is home to many families.
  • Decatur is also home to Agnes Scott College, Emory University and the Centers for Disease Control, so many students, professors, and doctors/researchers call Decatur home.
  • This city has exploded onto the dining scene in recent years. Cakes & Ale was voted best restaurant in Atlanta in 2015, and the Brick Store Pub is recognized as one of the best craft beer bars in the country.
  • There is a restaurant for everyone here, from the line-out-the-door favorite Taqueria del Sol to lunch stronghold Pastries-a-Go-Go to more refined dining at No. 246 and Revival. Don't forget to pick up dessert at one of several ice-cream and yogurt places on the town square. There are also numerous retail shops in the area as well; Square Foot and Squash Blossom can outfit men and women from head to toe, and make sure to stop in Little Shop of Stories for the kiddos!
