HotelTonight – Book Your Last-Minute Hotel in Decatur Texas
Decatur, Texas is a small town located 25 miles northwest of Fort Worth, which makes it easy for locals to drive into both Fort Worth and Dallas whenever they need a fix of big city excitement and entertainment. Most Decatur locals would much rather live in their town, though, because it offers all of the perks of a quintessential small town, such as a tight-knit community, laidback atmosphere and friendly neighbors. I felt an instant connection with Decatur, Texas, when I arrived, and I really did begin to understand why people would want to live in small town like this. There's a welcoming, peaceful vibe in Decatur that you won't find in big cities like Fort Worth or Dallas, and that's why I chose to stay in the area instead of in one of the cities. To book my hotel in Decatur, all I had to do was pull up the HotelTonight app on my phone. Minutes later, I had booked a great hotel room in the heart of Decatur, Texas.
Decatur's historic downtown looks just how you would picture a historic downtown in a small Texas town. With old red brick buildings and a Western flare, Decatur's historic downtown looks like it belongs on a movie set, but it has such a strong and authentic character that I couldn't help but fall in love with the town just a little bit. By strolling through the historic downtown (which won't take very long, since it's a rather small downtown area), you'll get a great feel for what everyday life is like for Decatur locals.
There is some beautiful nature around Decatur, and locals told me that I couldn't miss the chance to visit the Lyndon B. Johnson National Grassland while in Decatur. This preserved land is a popular local spot for horseback riding, hiking, fishing, hunting and bird watching, so locals come to the Grassland whenever they want to immerse themselves in nature.
Decatur may be a small town, but it definitely knows how to provide great amenities for its residents. There are a number of lovely parks in the Decatur area, including Harmon Park, the Hollis & Sue Jones Park, the Melba Doyle Park and the Kenny Renshaw Park. Locals frequent these parks whenever they want to get outside, get active and enjoy a beautiful day. Many of these parks feature great walking and hiking trails, sports facilities and picnic areas, so they're popular hangout spots for Decatur residents.
