Athens, Georgia, is simply a classic. From the birthplace of higher education to the magnetism of Athens-born rock bands like B52’s and R.E.M., every corner of the city is saturated with rich culture, good eats, and bustling gatherings. And with 100 Things to Do in Athens, Georgia Before You Die as your guide, you’ll have all of the locals’ tips for exploring the best the city has to offer.
Stroll through the inspirational North Campus of the University of Georgia, where in 1785, public higher education was born. Walk through historic homes that have withstood wars and the steamroller of time. Eat a blue-plate special built by a James Beard Award-winning chef, and then cruise from one home-grown brewery to the next on the Athens Beer Trail. Live music and local musicians crank up the nightlife in many of the theaters and bars. Natural beauty blooms at the State Botanical Garden and the North Oconee Greenway welcomes cyclists and walkers from sunrise to sundown.
