Painting, drawing, doodling, lettering, dancing - you name it, there is a spot in Athens for it! Being such a creative town, Athens makes sure to give its residents and visitors a wide array of studios where they can let their imagination run wild and have a mini vacation of creative peace.

No matter your skill level or how artistically inclined you may be, these studios welcome everyone. You can bring friends for a girls night out or take the kids for an inventive, hands-on adventure. Here is a list of five places to let your creativity fly in Athens, GA!

Couldn't get a ticket to the Georgia Bulldogs football game? Don't fret! Athens wasn't named the Best College Town in America for nothing, making the town the best place to be on Saturday's, whether you have a ticket or not!

Picking the perfect place to eat dinner, lunch, brunch or breakfast with your crew can be hard. Not only do you have to pick the cuisine, but the ambiance also factors into your perfect culinary experience. Do you want to be outdoors or indoors? Do you want solitude or live music? Cozy or modern?

Athens, Home of Terrapin

Thursday, July 6, 2017 10:00 AM by Jenna Beals

As many of you know, Terrapin, an Athens hometown brewery, has recently made it big in the ATL. With the opening of Suntrust Park, the Atlanta Braves new baseball stadium, came the opening of the Terrapin Taproom at the Battery (the area surrounding the stadium). This is a huge step for the company as non-Athenians are being introduced to this great brand. However, we can't forget the craft beers' roots, as all Terrapin roads lead back to Athens. If you want to learn even more about this popular brew, a trip to Athens is in store to see where it all began.
