Virginia-Highland is located just a few minutes north of midtown Atlanta. This neighborhood was created in the early 1900s and is named for the intersection where its two main roads meet, Virginia Avenue and Highland Avenue. Virginia Highland is popular with people from all walks of life, including young professionals and families, and has something to offer everyone.
An abundance of restaurants and retail shops line the streets, and you'll always see a crowd enjoying al fresco dining on a nice day or evening. Popular restaurants include Atkins Park (which also has the distinction of being Atlanta's oldest bar), Neighbor's, La Tavola, Moe's and Joe's, and Murphy's to name just a few.
The rapidly expanding Beltline is easily accessible from Virginia-Highland, as is Atlanta's biggest public greenspace, 189-acre Piedmont Park. The popular Virginia-Highland Summerfest has taken place in this neighborhood during the first weekend of June since 1984, and the famous Peachtree Road Race ends in Piedmont Park every July 4.
