Buckhead is the Place to Be

Buckhead is becoming one of the trendiest and high-end areas in Atlanta. Sandwiched between Downtown and Midtown Atlanta, Buckhead creates an urban vibe that’s sustainable, walkable to many restaurants, parks and green space, and incredible shopping. And since it’s one of the most walkable areas in Atlanta, it makes sense why people are trying to get the coveted Buckhead zip code. 

 

Here are some of the top reasons people choose Buckhead:

  1. Bikeable 
  2. Excellent Transit Options
  3. Awesome Restaurants & Bars
  4. Entertainment
  5. Boutique Apartment Communities

 

Walkable

When people think of Atlanta, Concrete Jungle often comes to mind. Atlanta is a commuter city and often requires a vehicle to get around. Public transit is a great option, but it doesn’t cover all areas; and if you commute outside of the city, you could spend half your day in the car depending on where you’re going. Buckhead is one of the hottest neighborhoods in Atlanta and has many shops and restaurants that are within walking distance of each other. 

PRO TIP: CoHo is within walking distance of many awesome restaurants, bars, coffee shops, the Beltline, and MARTA, Atlanta’s light rail.

Bikeable

If you enjoy biking or wish to go somewhere a little farther than walking distance, Buckhead is pretty bike friendly. In fact, many people will rent a shared bike or grab their own and hop on over to the Beltline or Midtown area, which is another cool eclectic neighborhood in Atlanta. The Atlanta Beltline is the perfect urban green space to ride your bike, electric scooter, skateboard, or roller blades. 

PRO TIP: Grab your bike and ride over to the Beltline for some nice relaxing green space. CoHo Apartments has direct access to the scenic BeltLine Northside Trail.

 

Excellent Transit Options

When you don’t feel like walking, biking, driving, or getting a ride share, Buckhead has many transit options to choose from. With several bus route options and a light rail, you can get to Downtown, Midtown, and other neighborhoods in 30 minutes or less. MARTA is the light rail option in Buckhead. With access to 2 different lines, you can get to where you go with little fuss and cost.

Tips for Moving into your new Apartment at Valencia at Westchase

Congratulations! You’ve finally moved into your new home at Valencia at Westchase Apartments and cannot wait to settle into this new chapter in your life. Moving (as you may recall) can be a bit stressful–packing up your old life, discarding what serves or doesn’t serve you anymore (and if you’re into doing this Konmari style, it can add even more to your move), finding movers, changing your address, switching utilities…the list goes on and on. 

You get into your new home and realize, you threw out your old shower curtain or packed your knives or scissors and can’t easily open your boxes. And you’ve moved into a completely new area or neighborhood and haven’t learned where everything is. And just like that the stress continues. 

Moving and settling in doesn’t have to be stressful. This is a transitory time and one that you want to remember fondly. So before you begin unpacking or creating a space of anxiety and resistance around unpacking, take some time to follow these guidelines.

  1. Take a deep breath. Soak in all that it took to get you to this place. You just made a big move! Take a moment to calm yourself and really get present to your new space. 
  2. Find gratitude. You’ve made it through a lot of obstacles and changes to get here. No matter how you do it, moving does not come stress free. Even if you hired people to pack and move your things, you still have to mentally prepare yourself for the changes coming. Make a list of all that you are grateful for and all of the support you received to get to this place. 
  3. Create a plan. Which room makes the most sense to start with unpacking? You’ll likely want to sleep in your room your first night, so perhaps it’s setting up your bed and getting it ready for slumber. And you know you’ll be in your bathroom, so maybe next you gather your toiletries and essentials so they’re ready for bedtime. 
  4. Start with one box at a time. We often think we’re superhuman and can do multiple things at once. While that may work for some, the likelihood is that most of us are Wonder Woman. It can be overwhelming when you look at all of your boxes and think about how long it’s going to take to unpack and put everything in its new place. Turn on some fun music, grab a beer or glass of wine, and start with one box! And when you finish that one, start with the next and before you know it, you’ve unpacked multiple things! 
  5. Ask for help. We also believe that we can do everything on our own. And while that is often the case, don’t be afraid to ask friends, family, or neighbors for help in unpacking your things. Or use them to pick up food or supplies for you.
