Buckhead Atlanta Guide
City Information Buckhead Getting to Atlanta is a breeze. 80% of the U.S. population is within a two hour flight of ATL. From the airport, it’s a quick 25 minute drive into the heart of Buckhead. For drivers, ATL is the hub of the Southeast with Interstates 75, 85, and 285 surrounding Buckhead, and the area lies just a few miles north of Interstate 20. Getting around in Buckhead has become even more convenient with the amount of amazing restaurants and shops taking over the city! If your destination is farther than a light walk, we recommend Uber for the quickest transport as well as MARTA public transit system.
Although known for its dramatic heat, this wonderful city does in fact experience all four seasons. July is our hottest month of the year while January wins the race for the coldest. The average annual temperature of 61 degrees allows us to take advantage of our great outdoor festivals, happy hour patios and multiple parks year round!
