Well-regarded in Atlanta as the most desirable neighborhood of the city, Virginia Highland is a quaint, but lively area of Atlanta. This neighborhood is located just north and slightly east of Atlanta’s city center, with its heart on the corner of Virginia Avenue and North Highland Avenue. Here, you will find a wide selection of gift shops, high-end boutiques, delectable cafes and highly respected restaurants. Although every shop is worth a stop, there are a few places that must be highlighted.
One facet of Atlanta that may be surprising to some is the enthusiastic and friendly creative community that thrives here. Never in my life have I personally experienced such a positive, enriching community that genuinely wishes success on every single member. The creative community in Atlanta is where Southern Hospitality meets savvy business smarts; it’s where free-spirited ideas meet innovative execution. And through all the mutual uplifting and collaboration comes success to many of these makers-turned-small-business-owners.
When it comes to beauty and hair care, finding a one-stop shop is ideal, but definitely a rare luxury. Most women can agree on what a difficult task it is to find not only the right hair stylist, but also the right esthetician and the right manicurist. Fortunately for Atlantans, a new full-service salon that has it all has opened in Buckhead: White Salon and Spa.
With all the ups and downs, stress and drama, and flat out chaos that many of us face day-to-day, it’s safe to say that sometimes we just need a little bit of “me time”. I can’t be the only one that finds myself in desperate need of a little self-indulgence to get back on track. And in fact, I’m not, which is why there are so many wonderfully relaxing options in Atlanta. Looking to pamper yourself? Try these top picks:
