Located only one hour from Atlanta makes it easy to get to major events such as concerts, Braves baseball, shopping, and great restaurants. However, other than the Braves, we have it all here in Athens. The Classic Center has fabulous entertainers, plays and concerts. The restaurants in Athens are wonderful and the music all around town is lots of fun.
Our daughter takes trapeze classes and has several public performances with her class each year. This is at Canopy Studio and just recently as a downtown nightclub, Tasty World.
Every year in April, there is a huge bicycle race called the Twilight Criterium. They close off the downtown area and cyclist come from all over the country to compete. There is music, food, and various races throughout the day and evening.
