Athens Based Packages

Athens - A College Town With a Vibrant Atmosphere

Nestled in the heart of Northeast Georgia, approximately 110 miles from the storied greens of Augusta, Athens stands as a vibrant beacon of culture, creativity, and Southern hospitality. Renowned for its eclectic mix of music, arts, and educational excellence, thanks to the University of Georgia, Athens offers a unique blend of youthful energy and historic charm that captivates visitors and locals alike.

Athens is a city where the past and the present converge in a colourful mosaic of experiences. The downtown area, pulsating with life, is the heart of Athens’ social scene, boasting an array of bars and restaurants that cater to an eclectic palate. From the legendary Georgia Theatre, which doubles as a music venue and a rooftop bar, to the classic Southern fare and craft cocktails at The National, Athens’ culinary scene is as diverse as its population. Craft beer enthusiasts revel in the city’s burgeoning brewery scene, with local establishments like Creature Comforts Brewing Co. offering tours and tastings that highlight the city’s innovative spirit.

Beyond its vibrant nightlife and cultural offerings, Athens presents a tapestry of green spaces and historic architecture, inviting visitors to explore its antebellum homes and verdant parks. The State Botanical Garden of Georgia and Sandy Creek Park offer peaceful retreats from the urban energy, showcasing the natural beauty of the region.

Athens’ proximity to Augusta, just a two-hour drive away, makes it an appealing destination for those looking to experience the Masters Golf Tournament but it is not recommended that you commute on consecutive days.
