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.

The feel of the section is terrific. And except for the difficulty in parking I would recommend that anyone who wants to understand the neighborhoods of Atlanta should visit this area.
