What Its Known For
Buckhead, just north of Midtown, tends to be one of the more expensive neighborhoods in Atlanta, with its sprawling, grand estates and flourishing business district. One of the largest commercial districts in Atlanta, the Buckhead business district boasts a variety of high-end retail, gourmet restaurants, art galleries and museums. The development of high-rise condos and lofts in Buckhead have added to the area’s housing options, providing more affordable price points in the area.
Buckhead is home to a handful of parks and trails, including Atlanta’s largest city park, Chastain Park. Much more than trees and grass, Chastain Park includes playgrounds, tennis courts, a golf course, swimming pool, and even a horse park! Because of its vast range of restaurants, rooftop bars, breweries, dance clubs and entertainment venues, the Buckhead neighborhood is popular amongst locals and tourists alike, so don’t be surprised to encounter large crowds and time devouring, rush-hour traffic. Speaking of traffic, the neighborhood is bordered by I-75 and I-85, and one of Atlanta’s main streets, Peachtree Road, runs north to south through the area, connecting it with Downtown.
