Which Atlanta neighborhood should you live in?

Atlanta is the city of sprawl: the metro area includes dozens of counties and millions of people. And the city's heart, inside the perimeter, is broken up into many distinct neighborhoods, each with its own flavor -- with particular attractions, attitudes and more. It doesn't matter where you live now: Our quiz will tell you where you're meant to be.

Buckhead!

Buckhead!

Atlanta's chic-est self. This uptown district has everything, if you can afford it (and don't mind the traffic), including premium shopping, dining and nightlife experiences, not to mention a slew of high-rise apartments.

Midtown!

Midtown!

Midtown residents have quick access to many quintessential Atlanta experiences (the Fabulous Fox Theatre, Piedmont Park) thanks to the city's penchant for leafy residential blocks running just behind main avenues such as Peachtree Street.

Decatur!

Decatur!

With a picturesque downtown square packed with some of the metro area’s best restaurants, Decatur is -- as they say -- where it’s greater. The city just east of Atlanta proper is walkable, family-friendly and features some of the best schools in the area. The beer fest and book festival are annual highlights, but really, any day is a good day to be in Decatur. Our guess is that you have a family, or are thinking of starting one (wink wink).

West side!

West side!

Understated and previously underrated, the west side of Atlanta is a culinary and real estate hot spot right now. With several new home communities popping up, the west side is a great place to buy a reasonably priced new home in town. Top restaurants like Miller Union, The Optimist and Antico are sprinkled all over, so if you want in-town living at OTP prices, check out what’s going on west of the connector. This ‘hood is trendy, and so are you.

East Atlanta Village!

East Atlanta Village!

You’re so hip you (almost) can’t stand it. East Atlanta Village is one of the most eclectic and sometimes just plain bizarre neighborhoods around. With cool bars, fun events and a walkable community, EAV has an inherent sense of community -- people love to live here. Now’s your chance to get a renovated home in one of the most happening neighborhoods in town. If you’re into live music and Delia’s chicken sausage, you want to live here.

Inman Park/Old Fourth Ward!

Inman Park/Old Fourth Ward!

The combo of Inman Park and Old Fourth Ward on Atlanta's east side is home to some of the city's most crucial historic cites, such as Sweet Auburn and Oakland Cemetery. The Beltline, a massive network of multi-use trails, runs like an artery through the area, which has recently seen renewed gentrification (think: Krog Street Market) after years of decline.

Grant Park!

Grant Park!

Local flare, dining gems, historic sites. The Grant Park neighborhood boasts some of the coolest things to do in Atlanta. The best part? You can live in an adorable craftsman style without giving up your firstborn child. This neighborhood has an eclectic mix of singles, families and young couples, which makes it a fun and diverse neighborhood. Spend the day at the farmer’s market and the evening on the rooftop at Six Feet Under, overlooking Oakland Cemetery. If you live in this neighborhood, you’re probably really cool.

Virginia Highland/Morningside!

Virginia Highland/Morningside!

Virginia-Highland/Morningside may be one of the most desired neighborhoods in all of Atlanta. This area truly has it all. With walkability, great restaurants, shopping, history, a tight-knit community and close proximity to Piedmont Park and the Beltline, VaHi has repeatedly been named “best overall neighborhood.”
