Established in the early 20th century, Virginia Highlands, often referred to as “VaHi,” is an eclectic neighborhood located in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia. Its name is derived from the intersection of Virginia and North Highland avenues, around which the community thrives. VaHi, with its energetic atmosphere and historic charm, stands out as one of Atlanta’s most beloved neighborhoods.

Virginia Highlands is celebrated for its fusion of old-world allure and contemporary lifestyle. Here, you’ll find tree-lined streets with sidewalks paving the way to beautifully preserved Craftsman bungalows and Victorian homes. These historic structures lend a timeless elegance to the neighborhood, serving as nostalgic reminders of Atlanta’s rich architectural past.

However, VaHi is not solely steeped in history. It also boasts a dynamic and lively social scene. The neighborhood is home to a wealth of unique boutiques, vibrant art galleries, and independent bookstores that exemplify its creative spirit. The culinary scene in VaHi is diverse, offering everything from cozy coffee shops to high-end dining establishments. The neighborhood is particularly well-known for its bustling patio dining culture, lending a casual and communal ambiance to its food scene.

Moreover, Virginia Highlands is a neighborhood that cherishes its community events. The Summerfest, an annual arts and music festival, serves as a highlight of the year, drawing crowds for its artisan market, live music performances, and a 5K run. The community’s affinity for outdoor activities extends to the neighborhood’s proximity to the Atlanta Beltline Eastside Trail and Piedmont Park, providing ample opportunities for walking, biking, and enjoying the outdoors.

Accessibility is another significant advantage of living in Virginia Highlands. The neighborhood’s central location makes it a convenient base from which to explore the rest of Atlanta, with downtown, midtown, and other prominent neighborhoods only a short drive away.

In essence, Virginia Highlands represents a harmonious blend of historic charm, urban vibrancy, and community spirit.
