Athens bookstores are the perfect places to pop in to during any season! When the sun is shining, pick a spot in the shade on UGA's North Campus or soak in the sunlight in one of Athens' many parks and break into a new book. If rainy weather has you trapped inside, grab a cup of coffee, wrap yourself in a blanket, and cozy up with a new read. Whether you're a hopeless romantic or a history buff, a classics lover or a sci-fi fanatic, you're sure to find a page-turner you can't put down at one of these Athens bookstores.
From local galleries to a nationally known museum, the art scene in Athens is ever-changing and always displaying extraordinary artwork. Playful murals add color to the side of buildings as artwork by Athens locals line the walls of restaurants. Even fire hydrants across downtown are uniquely painted by Athenian artists. With art as commonplace in everyday Athens' life, it comes as no surprise that the Classic City is a hub for art exhibitions. Check out some of the exhibits that have recently gone up on display in galleries around the city.
