Many students at Decatur High School believe that the City of Decatur offers little in the area of recreational activities. However, they simply don’t see all the joyful experiences Decatur offers its residents and visitors. From wacky restaurants to fashionable shops, the town possesses potential to hold a lot of memories for people, their families and their friends.
Students don’t need to travel so far away just to get a bite to eat. There are plenty of
activities and places to eat right here close to home. Students just need to take a closer look to
notice everything Decatur provides.
Decatur contains many local restaurants that don’t exist elsewhere, even if difficulty arises while finding these restaurants. Healthy options consist of the Main Street Cafe and Down The Alley Cafe. Cultural options include the X Chan Thai Sushi Bistro for Asian cuisine, Casa Torres Mexican Restaurant for delectable Tex-Mex, Joe’s Pizza & Pasta and Verona’s Pizza and Italian Restaurant for wonderful Italian food. American style food makes a big stamp on Decatur with places like the Whistle Stop Cafe, Rooster’s Roadhouse, and Sweetie Pie’s Ribeyes.
Similarly to food options, many people don’t know what to do in their free time. This town includes a lavish amount of everyday activities. These activities include going to the park, working out with friends, attending movies at the local movie theatre, visiting the Wise County Heritage Museum and going to spooky locations like the screaming bridge.
Citizens of Decatur also participate in limited gatherings including Cruise Night, where people view and learn about
classic cars, and seasonal sporting events such as football, volleyball, baseball and basketball.
Local patrons truly need to bring the business back to this small town and stop searching elsewhere for entertainment and dining. The community’s economy benefits from its residents making plans locally. Decatur continuously welcomes new businesses and encourages people to discover its hidden treasures.
