From concerts and festivals to a cup of locally-roasted joe with a friend. Downtown Athens: It’s all here!

Seven Ways to Play in DT Athens

1. Kick back with popcorn and an indie flick at Ciné.

2. Hit a festival! Bring the kids to Twilight Criterium, Ath Fest, or other family-friendly festivals with the unique and colorful sights, sounds, and tastes of Athens.

3. Treat yourself to a stay in one of downtown’s inviting hotels — from boutique to business class.

4. Check out the thriving local music scene on a rooftop, in an iconic club or cafe, or in the streetlife. Choose your venue!

5. Walk to an art gallery at Lyndon House. Check out the Peabody Awards Collection and rare manuscripts at UGA’s Special Collection Libraries just next to downtown.

6. Make some magic at downtown’s boardgame cafe, The Rook & Pawn, with its floor to ceiling wall of board games.

7. And do we really need to say it? After the game or concert, meet up with friends downtown and continue the festivities.
