VIRGINIA HIGHLAND
FAVORITE NEIGHBORHOOD OVERALL
Welcome to Virginia-Highland, Atlanta. The neighborhood is often called VaHi by locals and is named after the intersection at Virginia Avenue and North Highland Avenue. Once a streetcar suburb, this area is famous for its pretty bungalows and other historic architecture, with houses ranging from the 1910s to the 1930s. This lively neighborhood attracts people from all over the country, thanks to its diverse blend of dining establishments, hip bars and many retail stores. In addition, VaHi has become a travel destination for both the Summerfest festival and the annual Tour of the Homes, as well as other popular events. Virginia-Highland has been named “Best Overall Neighborhood”, “Favorite Neighborhood Overall”, as well as “Best Walkable Neighborhood”, by several prominent media outlets. The term VaHi is an imitation of New York’s Soho and TriBeCa, and was first used in Atlanta papers in 1998. Today, you’ll often see websites referring to the abbreviation, such as "vahinews.com". The gentrification of the Virginia-Highland has driven up prices, and it’s become increasingly hard to find affordable housing. The desirable neighborhood is today one of Atlanta’s most historic and unique neighborhood with eclectic characteristics. While there is plenty of commercial activity in the area, the zoning legislations prevent the neighborhood from becoming overwhelmed with new development, thus keeping the historically diverse and visually pleasing elements intact. Part of the planning includes preserving a colorful mix of businesses while controlling noise levels and traffic congestion. Virginia-Highland’s namesake and main commercial area is the streetcar corner at Virginia and North Highland, which has been widely recognized for it’s excellent food scene since the 1960s. The Amsterdam Walk is another attraction, a large shopping and entertainment complex home to a plethora of stores and eateries. Landmarks to visit include the Firestation 19, the Adair Mansion, Briarcliff Hotel and The Hillan Theatre, to only name a few. Whether you’re looking for museums, art, shopping or dining, the neighborhood of VaHi truly has it all!
