About Druid Hills
Decatur is having a movie moment, when the geek's glasses are finally removed to reveal a regulation hottie. Six miles east of Downtown is not where you'd expect to discover a Hollywood star and Food Channel darling, but Decatur is a shy charmer. The colonnaded courthouse and other Decatur landmarks may look familiar from blockbusters (<em>Stomp the Yard</em>), TV shows (<em>Drop Dead Diva</em>), and zombie movies (<em>Contagion</em>). And Decatur's own Krispy Kreme needs no introduction. But when the donuts are fresh from the oven and the original Krispy Kreme sign flashes the word HOT around midnight, the message couldn't be any clearer. Decatur is booty-calling Atlanta, with decadent mood-lit gastro-pubs like Brick Store and Leon's Full Service. By day, bad boys skate McKoy Park and rebel girls in hoodies add a fresh layer of graffiti to the recently restored Old Decatur Water Works. But there are still plenty of opportunities to geek out around here, with Scrabble marathons at Thinking Man Tavern sandwiched between between Decatur's Book Fest and Wine Fest. Successful Decatur first dates may end awkwardly holding hands inside the IMAX Theater at Fernbank Museum of National History and Science Center in neighboring Druid Hills. This suburb is a more obvious choice for romantic hero, with its preppy Emory College, landscaping by Central Park's Frederick Law Olmstead, and mansions for moguls like Coca-Cola founder Asa Candler. Druid Hills' Center for Disease Control has issued official tips for surviving a zombie apocalypse, but when the end-times come, the smart money's on brainiac Decatur to save the day.
