As part of metropolitan Atlanta, the 21,957 residents of Decatur, Georgia have earned a national reputation for being progressive while maintaining a small town ambiance. With a median income of $77,202, this Dekalb County haven boasts a 56 percent population having earned at least a bachelor's degree. This makes the city one of the highest educated in the metro Atlanta area.

The city is named for naval hero Stephen Decatur, who commanded several ships during the US tensions with Great Britain that led to the War of 1812. In the early 20th century, Decatur sprouted many garden suburbs, named so because the houses were on very large lots that sat back from the street.

The New York Times has called Decatur ""Atlanta's gastronomic equivalent of Berkeley or Brooklyn."" The city's arts and eclectic shops build on that reputation. With easy access to Atlanta's public transportation system and many annual festivals, colleges, and public art, Decatur is rewarding for seniors.
