Miami Beach would be number 1. Either way, while Brickell is upscale, Coral Gables provides a better combo of upscale offerings, and walkability.

Coral Gables and especially Miami are their own entities, hence my choice of Brickell because it's within city limits of the City of Miami.

However, you could make the case for both The Beach and--my favorite--Miracle Mile.

You're so right. But still, Coral Gables is so ridiculously close to Miami, and seamlessly blends into the city. It's geographically and socioeconomically like what Beverly Hills is to LA. Beverly Hills is it's own city, but is completely surrounded by LA. But for the sake of this thread, you're right.

No.

And it's not going to remain like that for long, especially with the streetcar getting underway.



He doesn't live here (obviously).
Mmm, Sweet Auburn sounds like its similar to Mount Rainier here in Maryland. What else does the neighborhood offers?

There are neighborhoods I would consider far more walkable in Atlanta than Buckhead.

Midtown
Virginia-Highland
Inman Park
Candler Park
Decatur
Morningside
EAV

Yeah, Buckhead is not very walkable. Kind of disappointed with the way that area has been developed. Malls, wide roads, offices, hotels and apartments with hardly any first floor retail. Looks nice from a distance, though.

I would throw in Atkins Park, as well, for a really nice walkable neighborhood in ATL.

Martin Luther King National Historic Site. Home to the King birthplace, Ebeneezer Baptist Church, the MLK Center for Nonviolent Social Change ... and THIS:
