Atlanta's swankiest neighborhood, Buckhead is no longer the epicenter of Atlanta's once buck-wild nightclub scene ? and that's the way most residents like it. The ritzy streets of Buckhead development have taken over, offering a nightlife that appeals to the residents of the many new condos and apartment buildings that tower above the area where Peachtree and Roswell roads split. The area has long been among the top shopping destinations in the Southeast, with its two high-end malls, Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza, and countless boutiques and salons. With more luxury hotels and restaurants than anywhere else in Georgia, and a MARTA stop and an exit from Hwy 400 nearby, Buckhead is the new Atlanta uptown ? and only minutes from the permanent downtown. Though it?s not the most pedestrian-friendly neighborhood in Atlanta, a lot of strides have been made with recent improvements, like wider sidewalks, and better access to local parks, like Lenox Park, Shady Valley, and Pine Hills.
