Athens is a pretty great place to live or visit. I originally fell in love with the town when I was touring colleges and soon followed that love to a degree at the local university. Though somewhat known for its impoverished status as one of the poorest cities in America, it is a lovely, arty city of a small size filled with things that make it unique and beautiful in and of itself. It may not have the best shopping or the most activities, but it has a certain charm that has kept me there even after graduating college.

Jackie O's Brewery is a well for its creative brews. Fluff Bakery has incredibly baked goods right within walking distance of campus. Ohio University is a beautiful college with a lot to see. The Dairy Barn has great arts and crafts to view on a daily basis. Avalanche Pizza is a local eatery that regularly wins competitions for the best pizza in the world.
