    Buckhead Reviews

    2 reviews
    I like Buckead because it's pleasing to the eye and is the richest city in Atlanta.l like the fact that its so clean. Everything is convenient for you by walking to the mall, store or even work. It kind of reminds me of New York where everything is in walking distance. I think thats why a lot of people arw attracted to it because it does have a lot of attractions for everyone to see.
    Review Buckhead
    This is an extremely beautiful, fun, and posh side of Atlanta. Enjoy fine food and lavish shops at the famous Buckhead Shops. The two most beautiful malls are across the street from each other, Phipps Mall and Lenox Mall. It is connected to the major highways, 285 and 400. It is a fun place to walk around and enjoy fun shopping with friends and family
