Bennett Street is located off Peachtree Road toward the southern end of Buckhead. The entire street offers you an amazing chance at window shopping. Around the turn of the 20th century, the street was transformed into a bustling warehouse district. Now those warehouses have been turned into shops and galleries where you can find antiques, art, and much more.
