This is a nice walking street with many restaurants, stores and pubs. The street is surrounded by similar areas and it's a nice area to hang out.

Athens is (was) my favorite city and I went to UGA for grad school, but the new NON-FUNCTIONAL "park-it.com" lots ruined the night for us and many other patrons. Come on Athens! You can do better!!!

The chamber of commerce, court house , visitors center are all located downtown Athens. Also there are many eclectic type shops and places to eat. However, you must pay for parking.
