Great Areas to Live in Metro Atlanta: Decatur

As living in major metropolitan areas nationwide continues to become more and more expensive—pricing plenty of people out altogether—residents are flocking to suburbs for promises of affordable housing, wide-open spaces, and big-city amenities.

Population: 25,732

Median home listing price: $412,787

Median monthly rent: $1,950

Decatur was dubbed Georgia’s best suburb in 2017 and 2018 by Just a few miles from Midtown, its walkable city center has a hip feel and lots of character, as seen in its various shops, bars, and restaurants—but without the hectic Atlanta traffic. Highlights include critically acclaimed eateries The White Bull, Brick Store Pub, and Kimball House as well as standout retailers Little Shop of Stories and Worthmore Jewelers. Decatur also gets a youthful vibe from the students attending Agnes Scott College. This area is in constant development. The enhancements to the area include new home construction, entertainment complexes and a wide array of diverse restaurants coming to the area.

I love Visiting the Dekalb Farmers Market and enjoying the international selection of foods and diverse shopping experience. Check out the Decatur website for annual parades, festivals and events.
