I'm a single, straight, female (in my early 20's) relocating to Atlanta in mid November. I've asked around where to live...and from most people I'm hearing Buckhead. However, reading other peoples responses to other posts, I don't see Buckhead listed anywhere? I'm moving from the Washington DC area, which, for those of you who don't know a one bedroom apartment on average costs about $1300 a month...so anything less than that would be a breath of fresh air. I like going out and being among those in my age group..so I'm looking for bars, restaurants, shops, etc. My top priority however is safety. Just like in DC, there are areas that are nice but there is always a bad neighborhood around it. Considering I'll be alone for the first time in 5 years I'd like to make sure I'm safe.

I'm going to be working in Buckhead, what neighborhoods/areas surround there? I'll have a car, so a small commute is a non-issue. Over all...what is the best place for me, period?

buckhead is like the beverly hills of atlanta but not filthy rich people. I would live in buckhead and rent a high-rise condo/apt cause they are usually safer and newer ones have 24 hour security. Look near lenox square mall.
Buckhead is generally safe however as in any place, the criminals go where the money is.
The perimiter mall/dunwoody area is very safe but would require a short commute about 10 miles, 30-45 minutes depending on the time of day.

Also, there is a high rise luxury apt on hammond drive right by perimiter mall, that is close to buckhead and in a very safe area. I think the name is park towers II, i will have to check.
