Athens Apartments for Rent
Athens wraps around the heart of this hip and funky city, the University of Georgia. But while UGA may be the heart, people move to Athens for the Southern charm, the exciting and trendy downtown, the famous music scene, the art scene, and the beautiful historical architecture. With a high quality of life and a way-beyond-dog-friendly atmosphere, Athens attracts college students, families, professionals, and seniors.
Coffee shops, stylish boutiques, bars and music venues, bookstores, and art galleries define the walker-friendly downtown, but Athens has one big difference from other college-centered cities. As the home of the Bulldogs (and extremely loyal fans), this college town caters to pets. Boutiques, outdoor cafes, parks, and even a bakery just for dogs all make your four-legged companion feel right at home.
Sandy Creek Park surrounds Lake Chapman and provides an oasis for Athens residents. Here, outdoor activities run the gamut: camping, fishing, swimming, hiking, and even a disc golf course and dog runs. And, of course, this charming city contains an active art scene with the Georgia Museum of Natural History, the Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall Sports Museum, and several annual festivals and art shows.
