Situated due east of downtown Atlanta, people are drawn to the city of Decatur because it offers all the charm and sense of community of a small southern town yet is conveniently located minutes from the hustle and bustle of the city. The heart of Decatur is its thriving downtown area with its array of retail shops, restaurants, neighborhood bars, office buildings, and private condo residences. The surrounding neighborhoods reflect an array of architectural styles from craftsman to contemporary... something for everyone. Want to catch a Braves game at Turner Field or attend a concert at Philips Arena? Although driving is an option, most residents choose to take metropolitan Atlanta's mass transit system MARTA with downtown Decatur's newly renovated transit station.
