Here are a few of the notable communities in the area that are worth taking a look at:
The area in the upper part of Atlanta, often referred to as uptown, is Buckhead. This large neighborhood is home to nearly one-fifth of the city’s population, and is well known for its wealth, and is sometimes called the Laguna Beach or Beverly Hills of Georgia. Most people in the area have an average income of a whopping $340, 000 and the prices of homes in the area can reach close to a million dollars. If you are looking for a luxury apartment in Atlanta, this would certainly be the place to look first. This area was actually listed on the Robb Report as one of the top 10 most affluent regions in the country.
If you love to shop, Buckhead provides its residents with a unique shopping experience with an internationally recognized assortment of boutiques, and with over 300 bars and restaurants, this area is a mecca for nightlife.
If you are fonder of the bustling downtown region, you should definitely take a look at Midtown. This great neighborhood is centrally located between the financial district in Atlanta’s downtown and Buckhead, and is known for its architecture. Midtown lays claim to many of the city’s most well-known buildings, and if you are an art lover, you should know that this neighborhood is home to the famous Fox Theatre, the High Museum of Art, and many other nationally recognized art schools and performance centers.
The nightlife in Midtown is abundant, and is you can find more than half of the nightclubs in Atlanta there. Even though it’s more affordable than nearby Buckhead, Midtown is still pricey, though some reasonably priced apartments can be found.
If you are more the laid back style of person, you should look into the Virginia-Highland neighborhood. This progressive area is home to the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum, and has the first carbon-neutral district in the U.S. It hosts its own major city festival, Summerfest, and has more decently priced apartments than Buckhead or Midtown.
