City of Decatur

The City of Decatur is on the east side of Atlanta. Decatur enjoys the benefits of being close to Atlanta while existing as its own city with its own government, school system, police, fire and sanitation services.

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!

Residents in Decatur are zoned for one of five elementary schools depending on their neighborhood. These schools feed into one building for grades 4 and 5, then into Renfroe Middle School and Decatur High School. More information on schools can be found here:
