Athens

World-renowned music scene

Nicknamed the Classic City, the college town of Athens is best known as the home to the University of Georgia, which was established in 1875. It’s also home to a thriving music industry that gave birth to big names like R.E.M. and the B-52s, both of which reference Athens in their music. Today, there’s a thriving downtown with locally owned restaurants and shops as well as restored Victorian homes.

There are a number of historic homes in Athens, including the Ware-Lyndon Historic House. The Italianate design is one of the few seen on Antebellum homes. This National Register of Historic Places-listed house is also a museum and home to the Lyndon House Arts Center.
