More than 40 million people stayed in homes listed on Airbnb in 2015, and the Poncey-Highland neighborhood in Atlanta made the company’s list of top up-and-coming neighborhoods for 2016.

According to Airbnb, an online community marketplace for people to list, discover, and book unique accommodations around the world, Poncey-Highland saw 240 percent growth of inbound guests staying in its community listings on Airbnb from 2014 to 2015.

Airbnb says 74 percent of all listings are located outside of the traditional downtown districts, and when guests stay in those types of accommodations, they are looking to become immersed in the community and with its people. It’s no wonder then that Poncey-Highland, known for its creative, artist-driven culture and artisan markets, has become a popular choice for tourists worldwide.
