I love living in this area! I feel very safe as a single female. There's lots to do and things to walk to. Everything is within a close driving distance from this neighborhood. It takes me less than 10 minutes to drive to work.

Atlanta is no New York; we are still searching for an identity, but I would definitely say there is a lot of great food here. Atlanta is a very diverse city, and contains all types of people and ethnicities, so the food is really a treat to a person who has only lived in one place their entire life! One of my favorite restaurants is called Panita Thai. It has truly authentic thai cuisine while only a husband and wife run the entire business. The husband cooks while the wife works at the front serving and hosting. Bar and nightlife here have really blossomed, there are hundreds of bars a person can go to in a night, and the bartenders are very serious about their drinks, so serious that it is their chosen career.
Lots of cute shops. Fairly expensive, but a great distance away from Midtown. Very family friendly. Mila Kunis stayed here.
