Big city vibes; small, walkable footprint! Decatur is easy to navigate and a delight to explore.
Walk almost anywhere or hit the town on two wheels.
Decatur is a pedestrian-friendly city. We have more than 60 miles of tree-lined (and art-lined!) sidewalks in 4.7 square miles, and most of our restaurants, retail, and services are within walking distance of our downtown Square (and downtown hotels). We have an A+ walkability score and are designated a “Walkers Paradise” by Walkscore.
Look for Walk There! Decatur signs along streets and wayfinder maps around the Square to point you in the right direction and show you how close your destination is. So get footloose and wander away!

Did you know Decatur is a filming destination? Our downtown pedestrian square is the iconic setting for HBO’s Watchmen. More filming hotspots include the marble halls of the Historic Courthouse/DeKalb History Center (Hulu’s Candy and Marvel’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier series), Legacy Park (ABC’s The Wonder Years), Decatur Cemetery (Goosebumps), and Agnes Scott College (The Blind Side). Plus, many more television and movie productions dating all the way back to Driving Miss Daisy three decades ago.
