This place is very close to Atlanta and is worth it if you have an extra day to kill, but apart from that there are more places in atlnata you can visit instead

Great place to visit. Sometimes there are outdoor activities. Also fun restaurants to visit. Marta goes through there. Can walk all around downtown and eat lunch or dinner.

What a great place to just sit out on a beautiful day and see life happening! I would strongly advise stopping by any of the cafes, snag a coffee and pull up a bench outside.

Must see place for an evening night out. Great restaurants, pubs and safe place to walk in the evening. Be sure to stay at the Marriott Courtyard just a half block from the Square and the 60+ restaurants within easy walking distance.

Very nice area to walk in after a concert or after a meal. The square is very clean with no litter. At night it is particularly pretty with good lighting. The last time we strolled across the square it was December 23rd; no one bothered us and there was a police cruiser next to the square.

I live here, so you're not going to get much of an impartial view from me. But we moved into Decatur (having lived nearby for years), because of the charm of the city. The selection of restaurants, shopping and great people is why we moved into town. And the fact that we can now walk here is the icing on... More

Has some nice bars and shops around the square - not a huge amount to see but enough to wander around for a hour or so
