The square in Decatur is a really cute area to walk around. Parking is difficult to find. There is street parking (free on Sunday and holidays). Lots of restaurant choices and a few shops.

We were in town for a concert and it was a nice little square to spend time just walking around looking. It has beautiful statues and murals and lots of little shops and restaurants to visit just by walking around.
