The city is located at what was once the intersection of two Native American trails. Today, Decatur is the county seat of unincorporated DeKalb County and is part of the Atlanta Metropolitan Area. In 2000, Decatur’s official motto was changed to “A city of homes, schools and places of worship.” However, the city is better known for the slogan “It’s greater in Decatur.”

The city’s total land mass is 4.17 square miles but there is no shortage of genuine, locally-based activities and interests in Decatur.

Decatur is 253.4 miles from Savannah and 863.1 miles from New York City.  Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport services Decatur and is one of the largest and busiest airports in the US. For more localized air traffic, many Decatur residents use DeKalb Peachtree Airport which is situated on the former Fort Gordon Army Base.

Tips for renting in Decatur, GA

Under Georgia state and federal laws, renters in Decatur are protected against discrimination due to race or color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, and disability. These protections are stated in the Fair Housing Act.

Tenants in Decatur should know that Georgia recognizes two types of discrimination; direct, meaning an outright refusal to rent to a person under any of the characteristics above, and indirect, meaning rejection of a tenant application without cause or for non-business reasons.  Indirect discrimination can also occur when prospective tenants are denied the opportunity to inspect properties advertised as “for rent” or when prospective tenants are told the rental price is different than the advertised price. Landlords who steer tenants of a protected class to other buildings are in violation of laws protecting tenants in Decatur.
