Downtown Decatur is the heart and soul of the Decatur community. In recent years, the downtown area has undergone a transformation with more developments planned in the near future. The new $17 million Cook Museum of Natural Science will open in late 2017. Addition attractions include the historic Princess Theatre for the Performing Arts, Carnegie Visual Arts Center, Old State Bank, Blue and Gray Museum, a farmers market, the historic train depot, Alabama Center for the Arts, and Morgan County Archives. Locally owned boutiques and shops offer hours of shopping and the food scene varies from down-home cooking to up-town cuisine. The downtown area is also home to several parks and green spaces and festivals and events are held throughout the year offering free family-friendly fun and entertainment.

I love traveling around America and seeing the beauty and history of our country.
Mentone Inn B & B. The hospitality of this small mountain town is great. The innkeeper is so nice and the inn is within walking distance of the Wildflower Cafe for dinner. Historic Inn only a short drive from two beautiful waterfalls and numerous overlooks. Oh! Not to mention the superb breakfast you will be served.
Following a back road or highway instead of the interstate.This will allow you to see so much of an area that you would not normally see otherwise.
