Neighborhoods in Atlanta

Atlanta has been thoroughly divided and subdivided into a complex network of districts and neighborhoods. In some areas, every other block or so seems to claim distinction as its own unique neighborhood with its own specific nickname, which can get rather confusing for visitor and native alike.

Downtown Atlanta, Georgia

Tours, sports, business, and fun, can all be found in Downtown Atlanta. Downtown Atlanta is the largest of the three business districts in the state, also known as the Historic Business District.

Known as the “Heart of the Arts” it comes as no surprise that Midtown is at the center of Atlanta's arts scene. Home to many theaters and arts center, Midtown embraces the arts with open arms. This helps to provide Midtown with the trendy, eclectic and urban feel.

An address in Buckhead--be it for home or business--is a mixed blessing. Certainly some of the ritziest but also some of the bawdiest and most rowdy elements call this area just north of Midtown home. Still, through the years, Buckhead has held onto its claim as the most renowned and fashionable of all Atlanta neighborhoods.

Climbing out of a long period of steady decline, this is the latest addition to a growing list of gentrified Atlanta neighborhoods. As elsewhere, the process in East Atlanta is a slow one, and even as a solid collection of shops and restaurants gains a foothold in the blocks around the intersection of Flat Shoals and Glenwood Avenues, most of the surrounding area continues to struggle. Visitors to the area should not stray too far from the central business district, although its relatively safe and continually improving as more and more youngsters who can't stomach the price tags in Inman Park or Little Five Points buy up the areas modest housing.

Geographically dubbed Little Five Points, this conglomeration of secondhand shops, piercing parlors, funky bars and music venues sprang up around the corner from where Euclid and McLendon Avenues converge on busy Moreland Avenue.

Perhaps the city's most quietly-hip and sought-after address, the largely residential Virginia-Highland area has been called Atlanta's answer to New Yorks SoHo and Los Angeles' Melrose Avenue.

In marked contrast to the funky, developing neighborhoods of urban renewal in the general vicinity of downtown, this trendy area has reinvented itself over past few years to become a rather enviable and affluent address.

Peachtree Street is the main street of Atlanta. Beginning at Five Points in downtown Atlanta, it runs north through Midtown; upon entering Buckhead, its name changes to Peachtree Road. Much of the city's historic and noteworthy architecture is located along the street, and it is often used for annual parades (such as the Atlanta St. Patrick's Day Parade and Atlanta Christmas Parade), as well as one-time parades celebrating events such as the 100th anniversary of Coca-Cola in 1986 and the Atlanta Braves 1995 World Series victory.
