    I think Buckhead is a good choice, a tiny bit expensive, but a good choice. However when you compare the COL of Atlanta it's pretty cheap by comparison to Seattle.

    No worries. Buckhead seems like the best area anyway.

    Sorry I couldn't help you too much with Virginia-Highlands, but I hear a lot of people want to move there, probably because it's so close to the city, yet has a suburban feel.

    I know little about that area except, it was named after the Virginia and highlands intersection and used to be a destination of some of the streetcars in Atlanta. I've been there and it's still mostly a small burrough that seems like it's trying to stay that way, but I'm not too sure though.

    The south may be viewed as a giant racially accepting region, but its just as accepting as anywhere else.

    Ok I grew up in a majority black city (griffin) & while I was younger there was some racial tension, because I am white, but as we grew older they became more accepting of me. You have to understand that alot of us are second generation children after the civil rights movement, so alot of our parents were still trying to pass on racism to us however we grew up being tought that it was wrong in school, but our parents weren't. There is a very accepting populace that aren't racist, but some and I say some, both black and white are still holding on to the seperationist ideals. You will find racial drama from those people, the whites will be very voiceful of there opinions and the blacks will yell at white people if things aren't exactly their way as if they owe them. These occurrences are rare but happen , this is all being replaced by a much more accepting populace. Hope this helps.

    Can you tell me about the racial problems? Atlanta seems to have a large black population. Is there really a big problem there with black people and white people getting along? There are not many black people here in Seattle so this would be a new experience for me if it's at all true. Buckhead seems like a neighborhood that is a lot more white than Midtown. Is that true? I would guess that Midtown probably has a lot more black people than Buckhead does. I don't have a problem with black people but I do hate racial drama. So based on that I think that Buckhead might be the best place for me.
