Athens, GA Attractions

Athens Georgia attractions offer plenty to do for all ages. Two of the top attractions in Athens are the state of Georgia's official botanical garden and official art museum. The University of Georgia campus has popular heritage attractions, too, including its historic North Campus and interactive exhibits at the Special Collections building. Sports fans will be excited to visit Sanford Stadium, stunningly set in the middle of campus and one of the largest on-campus football stadiums in the country. After visiting Sanford Stadium, be sure to stop by the campus bookstore with its massive collection of all things UGA. 

Athens is also known for its live music scene and creative community. Don't miss the Athens Music Walk of Fame on the sidewalks of Downtown Athens, which passes by renowned music clubs like the Georgia Theatre and the 40 Watt Club. You'll also want to check out the Lyndon House Arts Center, an attraction that lovingly blends the past and present with modern galleries extending from a historic house museum.

Athens enjoys great weather for outdoor attractions. Our local Athens parks and trails are award-winning. Check out the Firefly Trail which begins right in downtown Athens, take the kids to the free Bear Hollow Zoo or Sandy Creek Nature Center, or spend the day hiking, biking and swimming at Sandy Creek Park.
