  • Eddie’s Attic is a must-see for live, local musicians, while the Decatur Square and surrounding blocks are ripe with must-try local restaurants.

    Friendly, walkable and right on the MARTA line, Decatur is home to more than 200 boutiques, restaurants and galleries. Eddie’s Attic is a must-see for live, local musicians, while the Decatur Square and surrounding blocks are ripe with must-try local restaurants.

    The town has been making national headlines as of late thanks to its up and coming dining scene. With restaurateur Ford Fry behind No. 246 and an award-winning  menu at Cakes & Ale, not to mention a beer-lover’s heaven at Brickstore Pub, there are more solid food options than time to try them all in Decatur.

    Annual festivals bring thousands from all over the city and region to Decatur Square. The free Decatur Arts Festival runs throughout the month of May. The Decatur Craft Beer Festival sells out in seconds every fall. Bring your pail and shovel for the annual Beach Party, when the city carts in mounds of sand to cover the streets. The most nationally renowned festival might the Decatur Book Festival, which happens each Labor Day weekend when authors of national and regional fame come to town for the largest independent book festival in the country.

    All of this happens on the Decatur Square where locals hang out with a book and a cup of coffee or bar hop with friends while soaking in the sun. Chances are, if you’re hanging out in Decatur on a sunny day, you’ll find many more people doing just the same thing.
