Anyone who has driven through the South Milledge Avenue historic district of Athens has marveled at the expansive mansions lining the street along the University of Georgia’s “Greek Row.”

Once a year, on the first Sunday of December (December 2, 2018), the UGA sororities (and some fraternities) open their homes for a public tour during the Classic City Tour of Homes. Holiday decorations are on full display, and many homes will also offer refreshments and vendors with gift items for sale.

This annual event is a much-beloved time for girlfriends, mothers and daughters, and couples to stroll down Milledge and enjoy these lovely homes. All proceeds benefit UGA Miracle, which supports Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta
