What Locals Say About The Area

“Best place to raise a young family or start your career. Similar in nature to Decatur, GA's relationship to ATL. Decatur has all of the desirable amenities, shopping, and dining with a slower pace of life and a safer community compared to the big city Huntsville next door. Little to no crime in Decatur. Any amenities that Decatur does not have, you can find in Huntsville which is only a 20-minute drive away. It's the perfect relationship! Accessibility to nature and the outdoors is amazing-I can leave my office and be on my boat within 10 minutes. Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge encompasses the Southern edge of the city and has many well-kept trails and great access to watch wildlife. Lots of free community events for kids and young professionals. AMAZING historic downtown area that is growing rapidly! We love living in Decatur and all of the new friends that we've met who aren't even natives of the city. A good mix of born-and-raised and newcomers. Decatur is very welcoming!”-Niche
