Good local scene

A great strip with good bars and restaurants to wander on a pub crawl, nice mix of old and young, parking is not always easy.

I go here once a week for a meeting. And there's great little shops and restaurants along the main stretch. We've had ice cream, coffee, and food down here. I like walking around here and it seems relatively safe.

Virginia-Highlands is a collection of eclectic shops and high turnover eateries with a few long time landmarks. It is frequently over crowded and difficult to park. Be certain not to leave anything visible in your car. It is convenient for locals who live in the neighborhood which is near the 1920's Morningside area of Atlanta.

Virginia Highlands neighborhood in Midtown Atlanta is an incredible area for just about anything, shopping, bars and dining, nightlife, exploring, people watching etc. I've been to a number of restaurants in this little gem of a neighborhood and they are all highly recommended. Genki Sushi is one of my favorites! The neighborhood is also know to host a number of... More

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
