Athens is the ultimate college town, where campus and downtown meet with historic architecture and canopied walks.

Dine streetside or on a rooftop. Explore storied storefronts and quirky shops.

Celebrate the creative culture at a sidewalk cafe or a lively street festival.

While we as a community support our local frontline heroes and flatten the curve by limiting activity in public,
we also want to help the one-of-a-kind small businesses that make Athens everybody’s favorite college town.
Please support local businesses like restaurants and local retailers who depend on
curbside pickup customers and online shoppers to ride out this stretch.
Show them some love. Wash your hands, stay socially distanced, wear a mask, and stay connected.
We hope to see you soon!
