Decatur Reviews

Everyone is nice in Decatur! The scenery is beautiful and the school system is awesome. In Downtown, Decatur is also safe to roam the streets without feeling in danger. There are many schools to choose from in the Decatur ares including colleges. Public transportation is affordable and swift. There's an app available so that you can track their(trains, and buses)times of arrival.
Very walkable, friendly, and open to everybody! The food and atmosphere is great. Is also very closely located to many fun Atlanta neighborhoods, midtown, and downtown. Close to festivals and Marta is great!
This is the city I have grown up in and over time a lot of things have changed. Depending on where exactly you stay in Decatur it has its ups and downs. You can get anywhere from here inside of 285 in about twenty minutes twenty five minutes tops! The area has plenty of places to eat at all times and night life is great if you know what's going on on that day. There is not much traffic until around 7 pm when most people make it back to the area from their commute. There is a lot of community centers that cater to wide variety of people. Although there may not be tons of diversity there is still something that caters to everyone.
