"Beautiful, but something is missing"

Carver Hills is a neighborhood located on the westside of Atlanta. It is pretty much public transportation accessible, and is only about 6 miles away from Downtown Atlanta. Carver Hills is one of those neighborhoods that you almost love, but then you realize that there is something missing. What I mean is that the neighborhood is extremely beautiful, with lush Georgia hills, big yards and beautiful trees. It’s enough to make you consider locating here. But... the issue with this neighborhood is that the homes do not coincide with these beautiful surroundings.

Carver Hills has a lot of tiny little homes that look a bit run down. Perhaps the homes are nicer on the inside. But, from the outside, this neighborhood looks like it could use a dainty makeover. I guess the good thing is that pricing isn’t really bad if you are considering moving here.

There is not too much to get into in this area as for as shopping options. But, there are some pretty cool restaurants close-by. Johny’s New York Style Pizza, Nuevo Laredo Cantina and Hottie Hawg's Smokin' BBQ are all awesome dining choices for tourist as well as residents. In fact, Hottie Hawg's Smokin' BBQ won “1st Place Brisket” in the 2011 Atlanta BBQ Festival. So, I would say if you visit this restaurant, that you should give the brisket a try. Enjoy!
