City of Decatur

Decatur is the county seat of DeKalb County and is just over a 10-minute drive east from downtown Atlanta. A thriving, continuously growing city, Decatur stands out as one of the best places to live in the region.

Billed as one of the most progressive cities in the South, Decatur is noted for the high civic involvement of its residents. At its geographic heart you will find several neighborhoods that capture the city’s evolution from a sleepy small town into what it is today – the choice address of young professionals and growing families in metro Atlanta.

With a busy downtown hub, a thriving sense of community, a low crime rate, and the unbeatable charm of a peaceful small town, Decatur is the perfect place to settle down, make a living, and raise a family in the Atlanta metropolitan area.
