Referred to by locals as "the Highlands," this quaint residential neighborhood centers on the intersection of Virginia and North Highland avenues. The walkability of the neighborhood has made it a popular place to reside, thus driving up rents and home prices. Today the neighborhood is made up of prosperous young professionals and families. Some of the landmarks surrounding the Highlands include the Jimmy Carter Center, Emory University in Druid Hills and Piedmont Park in Midtown. On Highland Avenue you can find a mixture of bars, restaurants as well as high-end boutiques, gifts shops and beauty salons. Stop by Belly General Store for a fresh-made bagel and cupcake or window shop the latest trends at Bill Hallman and Mitzi and Romano. At night this casual neighborhood comes alive with bar hoppers that include Emory students and middle-aged professionals. Grab a pint at the Dark Horse pub or spend the evening listening to live blues at Blind Willie's. For a more laid-back evening, grab gelato at Paolo's or a glass of wine at La Tavola.
