One of America's best known streets, Peachtree winds north from downtown Atlanta through the heart of Buckhead, closely following the Chattahoochee ridge route of the Indian-era Peachtree Trail. Downtown, it's Peachtree Street, but after it merges with West Peachtree and heads north, it becomes Peachtree Road.
Apartments, shopping areas, restaurants and bars line what once was a street of grand Atlanta homes. With a great selection of shops, this is a must-do during a visit to Atlanta. The historical feel combined with an array of independent stores, galleries and more creates a vibrant area in which to shop.
