    Those clever city planners! Do you know from where the neighborhood Virginia-Highland derives its name? You guessed it! It comes from the intersection of Virginia and North Highland Avenues, which is the heart of the neighborhood. Though that pop quiz might’ve been a little self-explanatory, you can be sure that everything else about the area is highly unique.

    Developed in the early 1900's, Virginia-Highland is known for its walkable blocks of bungalow homes and bustling shopping “villages.” The variety of goodies that you can find along the length of North Highland Avenue ranges from quirky home décor to artisan paper, hard-to-find books to outdoor apparel, antiques to trendy salons. And that’s not even mentioning the options for food. Prep your tummy for gelatos, Irish pub fare, fusion styles, seafood and more.

    On any given day of the week, you might find locals and tourists alike mingling for brunch at sidewalk cafes, sipping cocktails at lively night spots and browsing the clothing racks on display outside.

    In late summer, thousands of Atlantans descend upon Virginia-Highland for SummerFest, the annual festival that celebrates the season and offers a tour of homes. Another fun event held annually is the Morningside Mile Race & Block Party, which benefits the restoration of Historic Virginia-Highland Fire Station 19. Be sure to mark your calendar.
