Decatur Apartments for Rent
With its classic Midwestern charm and affordable living, Decatur is one of the best-kept secrets in Central Illinois. Founded in 1823, this small city has a long history. Abraham Lincoln settled here in 1830 and was living in Decatur when he was nominated for President. As the county seat of Macon County, Decatur is as busy as it is quaint, with classic brick homes situated along quiet, tree-lined streets and a traditional downtown wrapped around a park.
Antique malls, tea rooms, boutiques, and flea markets are plentiful downtown, making Decatur a fascinating place to shop. Restaurants, museums, theaters, and a wide variety of activities and festivals in the park will keep you coming back for more. Located along the Sangamon River, Decatur is home to Lake Decatur, popular for fishing, sailing, boating, and other water sports. And with 39 public parks, there’s always a great place for a picnic, an afternoon hike, horseback riding, golfing, sledding, and even cross-country skiing.
