Virginia-Highland easily maintains its reputation as a cool neighborhood with a bohemian vibe, being a longtime favorite among Atlanta locals. “VaHi” takes its name from the intersection of Virginia and North Highland Avenues at the geographical and commercial center of the neighborhood. Virginia-Highland is very walkable so you can comfortably navigate the neighborhood and its eclectic mix of restaurants, cafes, bars, boutiques and specialty stores without the aid of a car—and maybe even find some hidden gems along the way. Much like Inman Park, historic Virginia-Highland originally began as a streetcar suburb for Atlanta’s working commuters but was later incorporated as an intown neighborhood as the city extended its reaches. Yet another reason for VaHi’s charm is its real estate: interspersed with Craftsman bungalows and Tudor Revival cottages from the 1910s to the 1930s, the neighborhood shows off homes that have been renovated and updated for modern use.

VaHi on Foot

For a largely residential area, Virginia-Highlands sure manages to pack plenty of sights and activities within the neighborhood boundaries. Places can get quite crowded on the best days, so choosing between leisurely brunch on restaurant patios or afternoon lattes on sidewalk cafes or crafty cocktails late into the evening can be a tough but welcomed decision. To complicate your scheduling plans just a little bit more, VaHi’s unique and diverse shopping options, whether you’re looking to buy antiques and collectibles, folk and pop art, or custom furniture will give you even more items to add on to your to-do-list. Of course, you can always spend quiet afternoons with other loyal dog owners at the three-acre Piedmont Dog Park, one of the best off-leash areas in the city.

If you’re looking for some artisanal treats and crafts and a week’s worth of fresh local produce, the year-round farmers market up north in the pricey Morningside neighborhood is just a short drive away. And the impressive Ponce City Market, housed in the massive former Sears, Roebuck & Co. building site, sits just diagonally adjacent to Virginia-Highland on the northeast corner of Old Fourth Ward. This highly-successful redevelopment project by the same developers responsible for Chelsea Market in New York is one of the best examples of Atlanta’s efforts in revitalizing and repurposing former industrial sites. Those still hungry and wanting to sample the rest and best of VaHi’s culinary scene can do so at the Taste of the Highlands event each May. In June the annual Summerfest, one of the largest arts festivals in southeastern US and certainly one of VaHi’s many sources of community pride, runs through an exciting weekend (and has been doing so for over 30 years!).
