Athens, Georgia, otherwise known as the ‘Classic City of the South,’ is a perfect destination for your summer bucket list. Known for its rich culture and hipster style, this unique city is full of exciting events and activities taking place all summer long.
The city’s story dates back to the 1980’s after two well-known bands, REM and B-52s, established the music scene in Athens. Playing at downtown bars, the two bands made it big, making Athens the new hub for local music. It’s no wonder Rolling Stone named Athens the “#1 College Music Scene in America.”
If checking out emerging music artists isn’t your forte, try stopping by a variety of art galleries, restaurants, boutiques, or one of the city’s famous breweries. Athens’ very own Creature Comforts and Terrapin Beer Co. are two of the most popular craft breweries in all of Georgia.
