Discover Athens

America's best college town

You may think Athens is a typical southern town — and in many ways it is — but Athens, Georgia, isn't a typical college town. Visit us and see why.

A music and cultural hub

Home to R.E.M., the B-52s, the state museum of art and a world-class concert hall, Athens is a haven for artists, musicians, athletics, chefs, and scholars. There’s always something going on.

Historic

Seventy miles from Atlanta, Athens is a harmony of old and new: Antebellum architecture, contemporary art and eclectic nightlife, a Victorian-era downtown teeming with funky shops and one of the South's most progressive culinary scenes.

Our Family Album

It’s pretty quiet here - except on certain Saturdays

Some would say that fall is the best time of year at Athens. And they'd be 30% right. Spring and summer are great, too. Maybe it's the smell of coffee in the air as you pass the small coffee houses downtown or the crunch of the red, yellow, orange leaves underfoot. It's probably the loud Saturdays; the cool, bright mornings; the nightly walks along lit paths; trips to the museum, catching your favorite bands downtown, sitting under a tree with a good book. Fall is the time we reconnect with friends, classmates, faculty and neighbors here in Athens, Georgia.
