DeKalb County Information

Deep in the heart of Georgia, you'll find quiet DeKalb County. Steeped in Civil War history, DeKalb—and more specifically, Decatur, the county seat—was a key strategic site when Sherman waged his campaign against Atlanta. Margaret Mitchell based Gone With the Wind—a book that has been printed more than any other book in the world—on many of the events of the county.

The arts are alive and well in DeKalb County. The Porter Sanford III Performing Arts & Community Center keeps the county well supplied with a wide variety of fine arts performances, and it is also a venue for local weddings and business meetings. And it isn't unusual to see sculptures, photographs, and paintings created by talented local artists on display in the parks and buildings around town.

If you're an antique hunter, a visit to Chamblee's Antique Row in Atlanta will be like discovering the Holy Grail. This stand of small, unique shops offers collectors a smorgasbord of exciting one-of-a-kind treasures. For a more contemporary shopping experience, head into Decatur. The downtown area is touted as a "mallternative" way to shop with tree-lined streets, and shop owners that actually care about making your shopping experience memorable. If you've shopped until you're ready to drop, small cafes along the way have welcoming tables outside so you can take in a little people watching while you rest.

The county isn't short on activities for those of you who love the outdoors. The Davidson Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve is a beautiful wetlands area and animal preserve, and Stone Mountain, which offers many exciting outdoor activities, is a wonderful place to spend the day outside.

DeKalb is a great place to visit, and a great place to stay…so come see all that is available.
