Leave your car behind and wander the central square of Decatur and the surrounding streets. Tons of great restaurants, several very good shops, and plenty of things to see. Probably the best stop on the MARTA line for being walkable to where you want to be.

Had dinner at Parker's on Ponce Steak House (very good place), then, went for a Starbuck's coffee (just in front of Parker's ) eventually, suddenly, I realised I was in Decatur's Square: fantastic atmosphere! Nice people around, several pubs on the street just "below" the square... fancy shops open even after 09h00 PM.... and... even a Capoeira (the Brasilian dance... More

A great place to dine out and enjoy and evening with family or friends. Decatur has a variety of shops, restaurants, and bars surrounding its downtown square. It's a great choice for a fancy night out, or a casual pub crawl.

We actually kind of stumbled upon it in our search for an ice cream parlor (Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams! Worth a visit.) and we're very glad we did. The outdoors space is really nice and there seemed to be lots of people just out enjoying the weather. Also, it's surrounded by all kinds of cool shops and restaurants so there's... More

Wonderful resturants and very unique shops. Place of many festivals from art to the annual book festival. Easy to get to by MARTA. In fact there are several apartment projects and condo developments which add to the urban feel of the Square in Decatur.

The Square in Decatur is a good place to take a walk in the morning, shop in the afternoon and dine at night. There is a good collection of local business (retail, food and beverage).

Family friendly place with restaurants, bars, clothing shops, book stores, and artsy shops. We have been to book fairs, wine tastings, etc. Always something going on. Clean, safe, fun.

Our small town considers the Square in downtown Decatur to be the heart of community activities. We have so many wonderful events each year, all held on the Square, and most are free to attend. The Decatur Book Festival (Labor Day weekend) is one of the largest book/art/performance art/music festivals in the SE. The Decatur Arts Festival (Memorial Day weekend)... More
