We will be visiting atlanta soon. We are planning to move to Decatur next year. So, thought it was a good Idea to visit the Atlanta area, we do not have family there, we will be staying in a hotel.

I have found the rates for the downtown Atlanta area hotels are very high. We are a family of 5 .So we were thinking about staying in a hotel in the Decatur area, and then commute to downtown Atlanta during the day for the attractions, etc.

To those that live in the area, is the commute long from decatur to downtown Atlanta, and is it accessible by the bus?

We will rent a car the last 2 days of our visit, but will not have one for the first 4 days.

If we had stayed at a downtown Atlanta hotel we would have still ventured to the Decatur area during the day because we want to see the area that we are planning to move to during the day, and evening.

Can someone here give us insight on the commute to decatur by public transportation to Downtown Atlanta?

The MARTA East Line runs directly from downtown Atlanta to downtown Decatur (I can hear the eastbound train coming in as I write this).
Why not stay in downtown Decatur about 200 yards from the MARTA station?
