Druid Hills Reviews

4 reviews
All Categories
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.
Review Druid Hills
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.
All small businesses. It's generally a residential area, so most stuff like groceries, etc. come from stores with a 10/15 minute drive.
