walkable communities

Thousands of retirees relocate to metro Atlanta every year in order to escape chilly winters in Michigan and the Northeast, while new hires and job transferees seek a fresh start. These home buyers want creative and unique lifestyles that meet their evolving needs, which frequently include leisurely experiences and workplace options close to home. Thanks to Atlanta’s booming economy, the city has developed an innovative live-work-play urbanism with mixed-use development designs. Aside from their eco-friendly design, these communities are walkable, offering residents convenience, beauty, and everything they need for a healthy lifestyle. 

In the following list, we have compiled some great walkable neighborhoods within Atlanta's perimeter.


It is situated off GA 400 in Alpharetta and offers a 12-screen movie theater, outstanding dining options, a conference center, a hotel, office space, luxury single-family homes, and well-appointed apartments. Over 500,000 square feet of retail space are included in this 86-acre community.


Forsyth County’s 135-acre trail-oriented community redefines how people live and work, connect with nature, and support their community. This community offers both single-family and multi-family residences, as well as shopping, dining, and recreation options. HALCYON will have nearly 700 new apartments and single-family homes once additional single-family homes are completed. 


A sustainable community built around the concept of biophilia, Serenbe is a 1,400-acre community built around the concept of biophilia. There are three hamlet neighborhoods, with two more on the way, that are densely populated with residential, live-work and commercial units. Each one emphasizes a particular aspect of living a “well-lived” life, such as the arts for inspiration, agriculture for nourishment, health for wellbeing and education for awareness. In addition, Serenbe plans to construct 1,400 more homes.


In addition to being one of metro Atlanta’s most walkable neighborhoods, this revitalized neighborhood is becoming one of Atlanta’s chic hotspots. Locals enjoy exploring the local boutiques and galleries, as well as visiting their favorite coffee shops.

Ormewood Park

Another Atlanta neighborhood undergoing revitalization is Ormewood Park, located just east of Grant Park and south of Reynoldstown. The new Southside Trail of the BeltLine just enhances Ormewood Park’s walkability factor. The new Glenwood Park development is particularly noteworthy on the northwest side of the neighborhood.
