Discover upscale living with a cozy, small neighborhood feel.

Quaint · Casual · Welcoming · Bungalows

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 Virginia Highland neighborhood 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 housing options here, including one, two, and even three-bedroom options. Rent is pricier than other neighborhoods, averaging nearly $1800.

Neighborhood Life

This neighborhood is known for its renovated bungalows and historic homes. Many of the single-family homes that stand today were built between 1910 and 1930. With easy access to the Beltline and Piedmont Park, VaHi lands a spot as one of Atlanta’s most walkable neighborhoods (right behind Midtown and Inman Park).

Local Life

Murphy’s restaurant, John Howell Park, The Atlanta Beltline, and Piedmont Park are just a short stroll away. Become a regular at cozy dives like Moe & Joe’s or George’s, both of which have been around for decades. Stop by Trivia Night at Diesel Filling Station to show off your knowledge, and dance the night away at Dark Horse Tavern.

Things to Know

VaHi is actually a collection of three smaller neighborhoods, each with its own tiny business district. So if walkability is important to you, select an option near your favorite of these three centers. This area is walkable and pet-friendly, so if you have a bike and a dog, you’ll fit in just fine here!
