When you think about Atlanta, the first thing that probably comes to your mind is the warm weather. But this amazing city is more than just its hot temperature and McMansion suburbs. It is a city with big attractions, cozy food spots, and friendly people. Atlanta definitely has some of the most beautiful residential communities that black families, singles, and professionals will love and enjoy. If you are searching for a perfect place to build your home permanently or stay for a few weeks or months, Atlanta is your best option. Here are the most awesome neighborhoods in the city.


This affluent neighborhood of Buckhead can be considered as the equivalent to Beverly Hills. But this place is perfect for those who are living on a tight budget. It has the first best median home value that is only over $490,000. For some, it can be quite expensive, but with its few pros for parents, the cost will be worth it. Buckhead is the third largest district, so finding work and commuting won't be difficult. It also has a great healthcare hub powered by Piedmont Hospital, some great public and private schools, and the Georgia State University College of Business which is located in the center of Buckhead. This place is truly an excellent option for families.


Another affordable neighborhood in Atlanta to live with your family is Kirkwood. Did you know that a home in Kirkwood will only cost you around $300,000 on average? But this is just one of the reasons why you and your family will love to stay here. The neighborhood hosts events such as the Family Find and Home for the Holidays. Family Find is an Easter egg hunting for children, while Home for the Holidays is a Christmas themed festival with a tree lighting, holiday market, and many more exciting activities. There's also the Spring Fling, a famous event for both the adults and kids where everyone can enjoy and have fun and relax while listening to good music and drinking beer. Kirkwood has diverse residents which is a good thing, especially when spanning education levels.

Virginia Highlands

If you hate cities because they can be noisy, busy, and too fast for you and your family, Virginia Highland proves that not all cities are purely areas of dense settlement and with huge expenses. This neighborhood offers many parks that children can enjoy. One of them is Piedmon Park which lies near the border of Virginia Highlands. The park consists of numerous playgrounds and outdoor activities for kids and kids at heart. Adults can play their favorite sports on the tennis court, soccer field, swimming center, and running paths. Virginia Highlands has excellent options for schooling too between K-5. There is the Morningside Elementary School and Springdale Park Elementary School which both have an A rating. And of course, safety is always a priority when looking for a place to live in. This neighborhood's crime rate is relatively low and there are many prevention systems in place such as police, neighborhood security patrol, and neighborhood watch groups to help keep the area safe.

Druid Hills

This place is smaller than the rest of the neighborhoods on the list but Druid Hills is also a great option for families, singles, and professionals who are looking for a nice place to settle in. Druid Hills has around twelve thousand residents. The average home price is here $600,000. Expensive, yes, but once you saw the place and tried to stay for a while, you will know that it's worth the price. People who hate noisy cities will definitely love how peaceful and quiet this neighborhood is. Also, it is only five miles from Downtown, so the commute to work won't be hard. The place offers parks too where families can enjoy the quality time together. Not to mention the museums, picnic ground, playground, walking trails, and Medlock Park where you can play baseball. School won't be a problem for there are primary and secondary school options for your children.
