DeKalb County   Minimize

Access to suburban settings, a fast-paced city lifestyle and hip locales makes DeKalb County a popular relocation option for young professionals, students and established business executives. Situated just minutes from Downtown Atlanta and easily accessible to all areas inside and outside of the I-285 Perimeter, DeKalb sits adjacent to Interstates 20, 85, 285, 675 and Highway 78, as well as the DeKalb Peachtree Airport, multiple MARTA hubs and the nearby Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Given its prime location and resources, DeKalb’s career options vary across a wide spectrum with strong opportunities in education, engineering, trade, finance, construction, retail, management and manufacturing. More than half of the Fortune 500 companies with a presence in Atlanta also have operations in DeKalb. Top employers include Emory University, the DeKalb County School System, Delta Air Lines, Walmart and BellSouth Corp.

Educational opportunities abound at Emory University, DeVry University, The Art Institute of Atlanta-Decatur, Laurus Technical Institute, Columbia Theological Seminary and Agnes Scott College, as well as in the successful DeKalb County and Decatur City school systems.

Your DeKalb Farmers Market, an indoor world market, is a point of pride for residents with its array of locally-grown produce, farm-fresh meats and exotic spices, while youthful Decatur is home to eclectic shops, tantalizing restaurants and a nationally ranked beer bar, The Brick Store Pub. Stone Mountain State Park—home to the world’s largest free-standing piece of exposed granite—serves as a family-friendly tourist attraction, while East Atlanta Village receives kudos for its lively hipster vibe.
