Decatur is a small town, but it doesn’t lack for things to do, that’s for sure! From a new state-of-the-art natural science museum to the oldest standing bank building in the state, Decatur’s charm is unmistakable. Deciding what to do will be your biggest challenge, but I’m going to make it easy for you. I’ve put together some days you can spend in Decatur, learning more about its history, shopping and eating, and, of course, having fun.
Did you know that Decatur was home to the largest collection of Victorian and earlier 20th century craftsman and bungalow homes in Alabama or that Hartselle was once the site of a bank robbery? Discover the history of Morgan County at the area’s many historic locations.
Home to hundreds of species of wildlife, birds and game fish, Decatur-Morgan County is a great trip for any outdoor enthusiast. Take advantage of the great bass fishing on Wheeler Lake or walk the trails of Point Mallard.
Your Staycation can be mixed and matched according to the weather, your personal preferences or special events. Increase the outdoor time and decrease the shopping or vice versa. The important point is to enjoy as many Morgan County attractions, businesses and restaurants as you can.
