Virginia Highland is so named for its busiest intersection, but you can show how cool you are by just calling it VaHi. While the neighborhood features preserved homes and bungalows from the early 1900s, the nightlife crowd is totally modern. The Highlands is home to a community of young professionals and families.
VaHi is a walkable neighborhood with Beltline access, plenty of parks, and green spaces. In a few words: this neighborhood is funky, fashionable, and Foodie-friendly. The shopping and dining district at the intersection of Virginia Ave and Highland Ave is a charming place to window shop. Local boutiques offer handmade goods and unique finds. Restaurants like Murphy’s and The Family Dog serve local favorites and host live music on the weekends. Plus, Morningside-Lenox Park and Ansley Park are just a stone's throw away to satisfy your green space cravings.
There are plenty of apartments for rent here, including one, two, and even three bedroom options. Rent is pricier than other neighborhoods, averaging nearly $1800.
