Take a hip trip to Athens, Georgia! The eclectic home of the University of Georgia, the nation's first state-chartered university, is 61 miles northeast of Atlanta, nestled just below the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
A vibrant, restored Victorian-era downtown teems with art galleries, trendy shops, world-renowned nightclubs and distinctive dining. Athens’ chefs have been inspired by the town’s creative energy to develop a happening food scene full of discoveries, and the town is becoming known around the Southeast as a beer destination, complete with great breweries and pubs.
Historic architecture and impressive gardens complete the unique blend of traditional heritage and trend-setting Southern culture. The vibe and energy that gave birth to R.E.M and the B-52’s are alive and well today!
