Don’t get me wrong…we love our Midtown Atlanta and high rise condominiums! But that may not be the living option for everyone, right? So, we keep a pulse on the surrounding areas that people might also want to consider. There’s Midtown West, or West Midtown, however you prefer to call it. Inman Park, Morningside-Lenox Park, Druid Hills…these are just some of the communities that surround, or are near to Midtown Atlanta. Another prominent one is the City of Decatur. And guess what… Decatur Named a Top 10 US Neighborhood!
The American Planning Association’s has placed Decatur on its 2013 list of 30 Great Places. Each year, the nonprofit organization each year selects 10 public spaces, 10 neighborhoods, and 10 streets that it says celebrate exemplary character, quality and planning. Decatur landed in the Great Neighborhoods section!
According to the APA’s website, ” Great Places offer better choices for where and how people work and live. They are enjoyable, safe, and desirable. They are places where people want to be — not only to visit, but to live and work every day.”
I recently sold a home to a couple just on the edge of Decatur that love the area and all it has to offer. If you’d like to learn more about Decatur, here are some helpful resources:
