Decatur Square, Decatur, GA
Courthouse, gazebo, lawn, elms, and gingkos—this square has traditional elements, plus a modern plaza that’s half the size of a football field and paved in brick designs representing Creek Indian symbols. Abstract turquoise lampposts illuminate the plaza and sculptures celebrating tolerance. Don’t leave without a sweet-potato-pumpkin-pie bar from Cakes & Ale).
