Quiet neighborhood, streets are lined with trees and giant houses. It's close to Emory University and Virginia Highland/Little 5 Point nightlife. It's an amazing spot to be in.

Druid Hills is the friendliest family place one can have. The community is upper class income background many residents are employees of Emory University and it feels like people live in the areas for decades. I love the trees and quietness of the streets. The parks are also very clean and friendly trails.
I've grown up in Druid Hills. It's a safe neighborhood. I'm homeschooled, so I don't know about the public schools and how good they are. Many of these things I've never dealt with (real estate, affordability, etc) but my family and I have all seen happy being here.
