National Design Blog Posts “Decatur City Guide”Decatur Metro | January 26, 2011 | 10:27 am
A few months back, after readers of the popular design blog “Design*Sponge” cried out that Decatur was underrepresented in the site’s Atlanta City Guide, the site’s creators said that if someone created a Decatur-centric post, they would post it.
Well it looks like Carla Schwartz of decorativity took on the challenge and created an extensive to-do-see-buy-drink-eat list within the Decatur city limits! Here’s a snippet of the intro…
One of Decatur’s biggest draws is that it’s walkable and family friendly. In fact, Decatur was just named “most walkable city in Georgia” by the website Walkscore.com, based on its proximity to surrounding amenities. Because Decatur is so accessible and friendly, I have been able to explore its city life from the time I was a young child. From eating burgers at the Brick Store (long before I was old enough to sample their famous beer menu) to checking out the sophisticated clothing in Squash Blossom to falling in love with music at Eddie’s Attic’s all-ages shows, Decatur has had my heart. Downtown Decatur is worth spending a whole day exploring. If you want to spend the day there, here are the places to go and things to see from morning until night.
