The historic Oakhurst neighborhood is a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia and is known as a modern, hip, and family-friendly community. With plenty of new businesses in the area, Oakhurst has plenty of cool cafes and restaurants. There are also several churches, a school, and quite a few parks. Additionally, the neighborhood frequently has local festivals and the local neighborhood association hosts socials, service opportunities, and holiday celebrations. However, Oakhurst is largely a residential community composed of standalone, single-family houses and the residential areas have tree-lined and quiet streets.

As the capital of the state of Georgia, Atlanta is a popular and thriving metropolis. It is home to prominent universities, professional sports teams, and well-known museums like the World of Coca-Cola, the Center for Civil and Human Rights, Martin Luther King Jr. National Historical Park, and the College Football Hall of Fame. While Atlanta is known for having heavy and stressful traffic, the Oakhurst neighborhood should be slower paced and quieter.
