The town of Athens is located in the northern part of Georgia and is home to a number of historic structures and hip venues. With the perfect blend of heritage and modern attractions, booking a room at one of the Athens, GA hotels may just be in your future.
Athens is serviced by the Athens-Ben Epps Airport (AHN), which is located less than four miles from the city itself. You can take a taxi to reach the town, but you may be more interested in Athens, GA car rentals if you want to be able to easily navigate throughout the city and its surrounding areas. Once you arrive at one of the Atlanta hotels, put your walking shoes on! Sixteen historic districts are scattered throughout the city, making Athens an amateur historian's dream. You won't want to miss the Athens Welcome Center, which serves as a comprehensive introduction to the area. From there, you can choose to travel the Antebellum Trail Bicycle Route, explore the 19th century Carter-Coile Country Doctor's Museum, and more. You'll also want to wander away from the Athens, GA motels to enjoy some great dining and drinking. Athens has a growing craft beer scene, so head on over to one of three brewing companies for a tour, or enjoy a local brew at one of the area's live music venues. Southern style cooking abounds here as well, so you certainly won't go back to your hotel hungry— or thirsty!
