Where to rent in Atlanta


My partner and I are going to Atlanta in a few months time for 9-12months, and we are considering areas to rent an apartment. At the moment we are considering Buckhead and Midtown (Buckhead for the shops/restaurants and general good comments, Midtown for the convenience of my partners office and being able to walk to everything we need) Any recommendations at all? My partner will be working full time, but I will not have a car and would like to be able to walk to shops etc... We are both mid 20's and would like to live in a safe but atmospheric area.

Thanks in advance!

I think you would enjoy midtown. It is lively and pedestrian friendly, with good access to other parts of the city by MARTA. In addition to apartments, look for privately owned condos or houses that might be for rent, and you may find a nicer place for less money.

Another area you might want to consider is Decatur. It's pedestrian-friendly and has a pretty nice selection of shops and restaurants. Plus there's a MARTA stop (subway) in downtown Decatur.

But you won't go wrong with Midtown, either.

Definitely Midtown! You get (way) more for your money than Buckhead- and it's nicer than downtown. I love all of the Atlanta neighborhoods- but for your particular situation, I would definitely say Midtown. Buckhead is not really a "walking community" for the most part- that's more Midtown :)

another vote for midtown. I live in Decatur and it is great as well. stick to zip code 30030 if you look at any Decatur options. for Midtown you'll want to stay on the East side of 75/85. the area around 10th and Peachtree St. is probably your best bet.
