Alabama > Decatur

The city, affectionately known as "The River City", is located in Northern Alabama on the banks of Wheeler Lake, along the Tennessee River. More people over 50 have moved to Decatur than any other city in Alabama, which suggests it's a good place to retire. Winters are generally mild and usually do not produce much snow. Decatur has grown to be the busiest river port on the Tennessee River, which has led to twenty Fortune 500 companies opening plants in the city.
