City Guide for Apartments in Atlanta
Being one of the largest cities and business hubs in the southeast means that the ATL has a little something for everyone. With so many areas within the city that offer their own flavor, apartment finding may be difficult for those just beginning to relocate. Here is a sampling of what living here has to offer.

Atlanta ApartmentsThe area’s major businesses are household names, but chances are that you would not expect companies such as The Coca-Cola Company and The Turner Broadcasting System Inc. which makes up CNN, Cartoon Network, and TNT, are all headquartered here. As for up-and-coming businesses within the metro area, a handful of companies made it onto Inc.’s top 5000 fastest growing companies that spanned sectors relating to health, tech and government services.

Looking towards the neighborhoods between Grant Park, Glenwood Park and Ormewood Park, are a good start for professionals and families looking for family-friendly areas that are also central. This area has a slower-pace to it, encouraged by Grant Park’s massive presence and the old craftsman-style homes, bungalows, tree-lined streets and old oaks. With plenty of recreational opportunities such as basketball courts and soccer fields and rolling grassy hills to picnic on and play at Grant Park, there is much to do for children. Also, the Zoo, Parkside Elementary School and Maynard Holbrook Jackson High School, are right in the neighborhood as well. Due to the combination of townhomes, and single family homes for rent, Grant Park is a great option for those moving to the area that want options within a highly reviewed area that is still central.

Buckhead is another community that is worth considering. Buckhead has seen some serious development within its community and is one of the largest business districts in the city. This has resulted in some of the best shopping centers such as Phipps Plaza and the Lenox Square Mall and a lively nightlife scene with a diverse selection of restaurants. Also, with many highly-rated private schools in the area such as the Westminster Schools and The Lovett School and a solid public school system. Living can be very affordable in this area, so looking for cheap apartments with utilities included is a viable option, however those looking for nicer options will be able to find luxury living throughout the urban and residential areas of Buckhead.

Midtown is another community that offers many unique amenities and opportunities for residents when compared to other Atlanta apartments for rent. Being the second largest business district and with its close proximity to Downtown, Midtown attracts a large number of professionals, young and old. Midtown is sandwiched between Georgia Tech and Piedmont Park, thus offering a very convenient location for students and offering the amenities of pet-friendly Piedmont Park, the largest park in the city. Also, the commute to Downtown is very easy, thus midtown makes a good option for Georgia State University students as well.

Also, Midtown arguably has the best art scene in city, and hosts the Arts Festival as well as a few other festivals such as the Dogwood Festival, and Music Midtown. Living opportunities range from refurbished warehouses that have been turned into upscale, industrial condos for rent, high-rise luxury and studios, and spare rooms in houses for rent.

Some other highly rated areas include communities such as Acworth, nicknamed Lake City due to its close proximity to Lake Allatoona and Lake Acworth. Also, about twenty-five miles outside of town, you will find Flowery Branch which is perfect for those looking for a historic small-town atmosphere uncommon amongst many of the city’s communities.

The climate is on the moderate side. Winters can sometimes dip below the 40s during the nights, but the days range from the mid-40s to 60s. The summers, on the other hand, exceed the 90s and are considered hot by the locals. Searching for a place with all your bills paid with rent and a nice pool area tend to be good ideas in terms of comfort and cost. Also, using the right guide yields better and more accurate results than Craigslist.

Besides the typical listings, renters may also be interested in townhouse style living in the area. Filter searches by townhomes / townhouses.

Great Intown neighborhood
Underwood hills is a great place to live and there are some of the best places to dine.

Midtown: Fun, vibrant, growing
Midtown is among the best neighborhoods to live in the city. Everything you could need is an easy walk away. It includes some of the best restaurants and is a short taxi to the Virginia-Highlands, Inman Park or Buckhead.

Perfect in-town neighborhood
Inman Park is an incredible place to live. Close to downtown, Midtown, the Highlands, and both major interstates (75/85 and 20). It has a residential area feel but is still convenient to all major parts.

Great neighborhood - walk to almost everything
VaHi is a great neighbor that works for single, marrieds, young families, and well, pretty much everyone. If you're going to live in Atlanta, make the most of it and live in this historic neighborhood that combines quiet streets and lots of trees with easy walking access to great restaurants, bars, shops, and Piedmont Park. we love it here.

Great location for getting on/off I-75. Easy/quick/tasty food options. Howell Mill is a little sketchy.

Candler Park/Lake Claire
This is a great neighborhood for being outdoors--lots of great parks and running areas, plus a short walk to several restaurants and coffee shops. I would recommend this area for young couples/families or for those who want to rent/buy a house since there aren't many apartment complexes around. Not an easy commute to Buckhead though!

St. Charles and Highland
I think this area is the best place for young professionals to live in Atlanta. You're close to many fun bars, shops, and restaurants, and the neighborhood is perfect for running and walking. You're also close to Piedmont Park/Midtown and a short drive from Buckhead. It can be hard to find apartment/condos here with lots of amenities, and if you do, you will likely pay quite a bit for them.

Kinda sorta Buckhead
If you want to live in Buckhead on a budget or be close to the malls, then maybe this location is for you. Unfortunately, it's not really "in" Buckhead in my opinion, as most of the bars/restaurants are a solid 10-15 minute cab ride away with the traffic on Peachtree.

Great mid-point between Highlands and Midtown
Living on Monroe Drive on the west side of Va-Highlands neighborhood was a great place. It offered the walkability of a Highlands location, but it was also only a mile down 10th street from Midtown spots. Also, Piedmont Park and Park Tavern was right across the street!

Highland Walk apartments
"This apartment complex is close to the Inman Park area, which is a great neighborhood for running/walking and for dining (Highland Bakery, Fritti, etc. are delicious). Also very close to I-85 access, which makes it easy to get to the airport or up to Buckhead. I wouldn't walk around by myself at night though!"

Great Location, but careful about noice
Great location, great price, but be careful about unit. There are a couple of rooms that are by the rail tracks and those can be quite noise

Wellington Buckhead
While these condos are a little older, it is a great place to live in the Buckhead area. The area is safe, has a lot of young people and is very central to many things in the city. Restaurants, bars and parks are all within a 5 minute drive. Some things are in walking distance, but probably not the best place for someone who does not have a car.
unknown user
Love the area.
Easy walk to midtown and downtown businesses and Piedmont Park. Lots of yummy restaurants and bars nearby.

Living near Piedmont Park is great
Walking distance to a Marta stop or down into the Virginia Highlands, lots of bars and restaurants nearby, plus a huge park to run or relax in. Post Parkside had communal gas grills on a back patio that faced the park, which was an amazing spot for a BBQ almost any time of year. Also a lively LGBT community in the neighborhood.

Great location
Lived in Virginia Highlands apartments for 2 years and had a great experience. Awesome location, 1 block from Piedmont Park, 0.5 mile to bars in the Highlands. While I never had a problem, apparently car break-ins are a problem.

Great neighborhood!
For anyone who works in Buckhead or who is looking for a great family neighborhood, this is the spot. We loved living hear and got a great house for a reasonable amount of money. You can walk to restaurants and spots for a late night drink. Really awesome!

Peachtree Hills/Lindbergh
great parts of this area: super close to MARTA, charming peachtree hills neighborhood and easy access publix and some shopping. down side: middle of atlanta sprawl and not whole lot is walkable. can be tough to get in/out of this area when piedmont backs up. all in all a good area to live if you work in buckhead

Rented a house in Brookhaven for a year, and it was an incredible location for a family, and someone working in Buckhead; affordable, exceptionally convenient (the town brookhaven development has a publix, a costco, a gym, and a bunch of great restaurants and shops), plus there is a great commercial area on dresden with more places to eat, etc; brookhaven is underrated; I would stay south of oglethorpe, though - beyond that starts to 'feel' far away (if you work in buckhead, in particular)

Virginia Highlands is a great, walkable area of town with bars and restaurants. Great place to live :)
