Welcome to Athens

A vivacious area in northeast Georgia, and home to the University of Georgia, Athens is only an hour outside of Atlanta—slightly northeast. The population as of the 2019 census was nearly 130,000 citizens. Formally known as Athens–Clarke County, Athens is perfect for a weekend trip or a longer stay, and there is no shortage of things to do.

The Sandy Creek Park and Sandy Creek Nature Center provide opportunities for biking, walking, jogging, fishing, sightseeing, and more. The Georgia Art Museum and lots of downtown galleries & boutiques highlight local artists. Athens is also known for its lively music scene and craft breweries. Another nightlife favorite is the Athens Haunted History Walking Tour.

An ideal family-friendly and pet-friendly location with plenty of free activities, including the recently-opened interactive 2.5 acre Alice H. Richards Children's Garden in the State Botanical Garden. Take a trip to the downtown Athens Farmers Market, crowned one of the "South's Best Farmers' Markets" by Southern Living magazine, or visit the UGA Special Collections Libraries to learn more about Georgia's rich history.
