We’d had Oakhurst Porchfest on our calendar for six months, and it slotted nicely into our Big Trip travel plans. Once again, we stayed in the fanciest and privatest of campgrounds, in our cousin’s driveway, right in the heart of Oakhurst. Porchfest was fantastic, and although we stayed close to home all weekend, we were able fit in a few more Oakhurst experiences during our short stay:

Pizza from Mojo Pizza

Sandwiches, salads, and noodles from Victory Sandwich (just outside Oakhurst in Decatur or Inman Park)

Red velvet layer cake from Piece of Cake


Growlers from Ale Yeah

Coffee to go for kiddie soccer spectating from Kavarna

Oakhurst has got to be the best neighborhood in Atlanta/Decatur. We are so happy to have a home base there!
