Take a Hip Trip to Athens!

You may know Athens, Georgia as home to R.E.M. and the B-52s, the city Rolling Stone named "#1 College Music Scene in America."

You may know it for the University of Georgia and Georgia Bulldogs, the "Classic City of the South" where rich tradition at the heart of a hip college town creates a culture unlike any other.

Nestled below the Blue Ridge Mountains, 70 miles from Atlanta, Athens is a harmony of old and new: wedding-perfect 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.

Whether you're after a romantic getaway, a unique meeting destination or a quick trip from Atlanta, find what you've been missing in Athens, Georgia.
