I went to Atlanta for a multi-day sporting event at Mercedes Benz Stadium. Was reluctant to go due to the nonsense that occurred last year. I stayed in Buckhead since it was central to the venue and family and friends I wanted to visit. I didn't patronize much in Buckhead but found the area to be clean and safe. I wish I had more time there. I stayed at the Spring Hill Suites by Marriot in Buckhead. The hotel was nice but I was hit with a $25.00 per day parking fee I wasn't expecting. Thanks BJ's Travel/Expedia. They also advertised free breakfast. That turned into Continental Breakfast that turned into grab and go which turned into a staff member handing you a banana and some coffee. I would have paid more for a hotel with a decent breakfast. I blame BJ's/Expedia for that! Otherwise the hotel was nice. Everything else I did was great. Spent some time in Brookhaven and Chamblee. Hiked at the Sweetwater River Trails in Ate at Cheese Cake Factory and Blue Top respectively. The people and employees in both areas were awesome. Polite, respectful, and just friendly. Sad that a small group of Atlanta residents can create such a poor impression of an entire region of the state. Thank you to north Atlanta for opening my eyes.

Luxury mall, Phipps, has many options for shopping and Lenox Mall is large enough to accommodate any shopper...including tasty retaurants and plenty of parking!
Several hotels are in the area as well as restaurants and bars. The traffic can be heavy during the week and weekend and it dies down on Sunday!

Buckhead is one of Atlanta's commercial hot spots. Here you'll find the city's most upscale shopping, along with a mix of dining options. I come to this ever changing area a lot. There's always something new going up or opening.

In terms of shopping, the main draws for me are Lenox Square, Phipps Plaza, Whole Foods and Trader Joe's. Lenox and Phipps are Atlanta's best upscape shopping centers. There's quite a number of good restaurants and bars in the area. Season's 52, Tuk Tuk and True Food Kitchen I enjoyed.

Buckhead also has many fine hotels.

Much to see and do in this upscale Atlanta neighborhood.

Have been there at least a dozen times on business over the past decade. Always felt safe and went for a job whenever I've been in town. I wouldn't set foot in Buckhead now. Joggers getting shot and women getting beat up in parking lots. I feel bad for the residents.

Nothing but bars and clubs, good for the night I suppose but don't waste your time going in the day. Advertised as an upscale town but turned out to be just another commercial area with a small historic area that had been turned over to entertainment.

I love Buckhead, and live here. But .... there is not ONE Buckhead so take care before just getting in a cab and saying "take me to Buckhead!". No, no, no. There are many faces. If you have a car, drive through its many neighborhoods. Looking for a "wow"? Then wander through Blackland Road, Tuxedo Road, Habersham Road, and areas around West Paces Ferry. Stay off the main streets, because traffic can be awful. Want a nice neighborhood? Check out Garden Hills, and have a pizza on the terrace at Fellini's. If you are a shopaholic, go to Lenox Square, then Phipps Plaza, across the street. If you want to go to just one place, especially if you are hungry, I'd say: check out the new Buckhead Atlanta. Eat at Le Biblioquet (pricey), or the Shake Shack (crowded but wow), or have a beer at Fado's - across the street. Across Peachtree, don't miss the new Restoration Hardware! And - while there - walk to the St Regis, and maybe have a drink or dinner at King&Duke. You probably want to dress well when you go. You don;t have to, but you will see what I mean :-)

We were looking for a neighborhood in Atlanta where we could enjoy a leisurely walk thru city streets, like what you do when you wander thru New York's Soho, DC's Georgetown or Boston's Beacon Hill. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT! I think our concierge directed us to Buckhead because there are no truly urban, walkable neighborhoods in Atlanta! Please tell me I am wrong??? Walking through Buckhead is like walking through parking lots with big box stores and restaurants sprawled throughout. Nice, upscale stores, malls and restaurants, but NOT a stroll thru the city! If you are familiar with Tyson's Corner, VA, it's like taking a walk around the city of Tyson's Corner. Buckhead is a suburban layout designed for cars, not pedestrians. What a shame!

I love Buckhead,. But .... there is not ONE Buckhead so take care before just getting in a cab and saying "take me to Buckhead!". No, no, no. There are many faces. First, looking for a rich and famous "wow"? Then wander through Blackland Road, Tuxedo Road, Habersham Road, and areas around West Paces Ferry. Stay off the main streets, because traffic can be awful. Second, want a great livable, walkable neighborhood? Check out Garden Hills, and have a pizza on the terrace at Fellini's. Third, if you are a shopaholic, go to Lenox Square, then Phipps Plaza, across the street. If you want to go to just one place, especially if you are hungry, I'd say: check out the Buckhead Atlanta. Eat at Le Biblioquet (pricey), or the Shake Shack (crowded but wow), or have a beer at Fado's - across the street. Across Peachtree, don't miss Restoration Hardware! Awesome.

Buckhead is a major commercial and financial center and heart of Atlanta. , It is the third-largest business district in Atlanta, behind Downtown and Midtown. The district's high-rise office buildings, hotels, and condominiums form a highly urbanized core along Peachtree Road.

The Peachtree Road, with tall buildings, high rise office buildings and hotels gives a grand look as we walk down the road from Buckhead Metro station. The Lenox Square is located very close to the Metro station. Lovely restaurants add color to this business area. I love this place for its location. Massive malls are located at this area giving ample scope for purchases

The name "Buckhead" comes from a story that Mr. Henry Irby ( purchaser of this area in 1838) killed a large buck deer and placed the head in a prominent location. Prior to this, the settlement was called Irbyville. . By the late 1800s, Buckhead had become a rural vacation spot for wealthy Atlantans.. In the 1890s, Buckhead was rechristened "Atlanta Heights" but by the 1920s it was again "Buckhead".

Buckhead is well connected by Marta (Train and Bus services) on the Red line from North Springs and from Linderbagh stations. Whenever i find time I go round the area and do shopping and enjoy the food at the restaurants located in this area.

Buckhead has over 50 high-rise buildings, almost one-third of the city's total. .Further Georgia State University's J. Mack Robinson College of Business' Buckhead Center is located in the heart of Buckhead
