Located on MARTA's east-west rail line, the City of Decatur has seen an explosion of homes, restaurants and shops in recent years as traffic-weary newcomers join longtime residents in this close-in community. The town, home to Agnes Scott College, is the county seat of DeKalb. There's plenty of hustle and bustle in the government buildings downtown during the day and more and more to do at night, including the many special events held on or near the square such as Decatur Beach Party, Decatur Arts Festival and the AJC Decatur Book Festival. Decatur boasts more than 200 storefront shops, restaurants, galleries and performance venues along tree-lined streets all around downtown and in Oakhurst village, just south of the square. From American to Vietnamese, Mexican to French, dessert to after-dinner drinks, you'll find something for every appetite.
