The Ultimate College Town

I can honestly say I fell in love with Athens the minute I drove into town. Cruising down Milledge Avenue past the charming southern-style houses as the sun was setting, I knew I could see myself here. Athens, home of the University of Georgia, is a perfect combination of a small southern town with a lively college atmosphere. Its vibrant, restored Victorian-era downtown teems with art galleries, trendy boutiques, renowned nightclubs and distinctive dining. Historic architecture and impressive gardens complete the unique blend of traditional heritage and trend-setting Southern culture.
