Many of Atlanta’s diverse neighborhoods have their own boutiques and unique shops, but the granddaddy of Southeast shopping experiences is located in what’s been called the Beverly Hills of the South: Buckhead.

With access to top design houses, you could literally shop 'til you drop at Lenox Square mall on Peachtree Road, which is home to 250 specialty and luxury stores including Fendi, Anthropologie, L’Occitane, Burberry, Brooks Brothers, Cartier, David Yurman, Louis Vuitton, Bvlgari, Ralph Lauren, Salvatore Ferragamo, St. John, Herve Leger and Ermenegildo Zegna. You can also find your department store faves, from Bloomingdales to Neiman Marcus.

Just across the street at Phipps Plaza you'll also find Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom, plus more than 100 specialty stores like Gucci, Coach, Giorgio Armani, Jimmy Choo, Valentino, Versace, Tory Burch and Tiffany & Co.

For shoppers seeking alternative finds, head to Little Five Points. This unique, super-walkable shopping district is located at the intersection of Moreland and Euclid avenues and is home to everything from independent record stores to vintage fashion boutiques. Commonly referred to as Little Five, it's been one of the go-to spots in Atlanta for some of the city's best—and most unusual—shopping for decades.

Another favorite shopping district among Atlanta locals is the Westside Provisions District. It's a mixed-used development off Howell Mill Road that's home to some of the finest home and interior design stores in the city—Bungalow Classic, Kolo Collection, Environment Furniture, Switch Modern, Knoll, Room & Board and Jonathan Adler. And it's also where you'll find high-end clothing boutiques like Billy Reid, Anthropologie, Sid Mashburn, Free People and Ann Mashburn. There's plenty of great dining within within walking distance, as well, so you'll have no trouble refueling after a long day of shopping.
