Having moved to the Atlanta from New England, this area has a great neighborhood vibe. I bring all my guests walk the area and visit the shops and cafes to experience 'Atlanta' beyond the airport or downtown tourist traps. If Asked why Atlanta? the Va-Hi area provides the answer.

This may be okay in the evening as there are several bars and restaurants but a visit during the day is a complete waste.

a must visit when in Atlanta with diverse restaurants and boutique shops. Murphy's restaurant is always a treat. The VH is a neighborhood eclectic area. A fun time.

Girls weekend stayed downtown but wasn't too far for cab ride and we walked around shops, had lunch at a sports bar for college football bowl games and then back out that night to several bars. Had a great time!

If you come to Atlanta, chances are you're staying downtown or in Buckhead... Midtown if you're lucky... while those areas are "ok" in comparison to other cities downtown areas, the reason people love living in Atlanta is areas like Virginia Highlands. Atlanta is 200+ little college towns that grew together... When you come to VaHi you park on a street... More

Nice area to eat and play but beware of Park Atlanta. I've stopped going to VH and have moved to other areas ( Old Fourth Ward, Inman Park, Westside) due to the parking harassment by the city. I wish the local businesses would stand up.

VH has lovely shops and restaurants and is a nice part of ATL to stroll. One of the few areas that has a small town, village feel to it

This is a wonderful neighborhood with great eating and drinking establishments, as well as cute shoppes. You can find some unique gifts. VA-Highland Arts Festival is held every year too.

There's no shortage of bars and restaurants to frequent here catering to almost any desire from a date dinner to a dive bar. During the week it's generally fun but weekends are full of bros.
