A suburban community within the city limits of Atlanta. Supposedly populated by Southern families with inherited money, but the reality is that Atlanta has never had much inherited money - or very many real Southern people, come to think of it. Regardless, the neighborhoods around West Paces Ferry are easily the richest in the metro area, and are home to at least a couple of billionaires that I can think of.
Apart from its residential districts, Buckhead is also known for its flashy upscale commercial side, from the expensive office space to the glitzy shopping on Peachtree.
Guy: I have a condo in Buckhead.
Girl: Wow, isn't that where classy people live?
Guy: I'm an idiot black guy who went to University of Florida, and I drive a car I can barely afford and I wear shiny clothes when I go clubbing. I think that I've 'made it' in life by taking out a mortgage to live in some bland high rise in a declining condo market. One day I will have kids and realize that I can't afford to send them to Pace, so I will move out to North Fulton and live in a Mexican-labor-built McMansion and send them to public school.
