West Highlands Reviews

1
I've lived in West Highlands for over a year now. I've really enjoyed it so far. You are close to downtown (4 miles from CNN, Phillips Arena, and the GA Aquarium). The best part is that it feels like the suburbs without the distance from downtown. The neighborhood has a park, a bike trail that is connected to the neighborhood, charter school, and a pool is coming. The houses are super nice and well taken care of.
