 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!

Decatur is a bicycle-friendly community, too, so bring on the pedal power!  Our city’s infrastructure includes bike lanes, bike sharrows, and bike boxes. Business districts are dotted with bike racks, and several bike repair stations are located throughout the city.  Decatur has been named a silver level bicycle-friendly community by the League of American Bicyclists.
