Fun Things To Do In Decatur, IL

Attractions, Sightseeing and Events


Decatur Tourism and Sightseeing
The middle is what you make it — Decatur and Forsyth make it memorable. For many of us, life in the center of the state means: Teeing off at one of three award-winning golf courses; jogging along the shores of Lake Decatur at sunset; uncovering precious heirlooms at local antique centers; and from the best seat in the house, tapping our toes to the beat of great music. Geographically, our spot on the map is exceptional, too. Located at the epicenter of Illinois’ four borders, our acres of farm fields and prairie typify the nation’s heartland. Meandering trails follow along the shores of our rivers and lake providing a glimpse of prairie wildlife and the changing seasons. Farmer’s markets offer the bounty of the Central Illinois harvest and our fairs and festivals celebrate our welcoming Midwestern hospitality. Lively performance venues and interactive museum exhibits; blocks of downtown specialty shops, art galleries and restaurants; and sports scenes played out on soccer fields, ball diamonds, and bowling alleys — make Decatur and Forsyth the center for fun. Put it all together, and the middle becomes a magnet, one that draws visitors and residents alike with appealing attractions, restful accommodations, and a welcoming spirit synonymous with an abundant quality of life.   Skip to Best Places to Stay.
