Be open minded. Athens...
Be open minded. Athens (downtown) has great places to eat and shop. Just keep in mind, things tend to have a 'twist'.
The people are the best part about this town. Because of the mix between the undergrads, grad students, professors, working class, and 'townies', Athens not only has several unique ethnic cultures, but intellectual as well. So even if you don't like the guy playing his guitar at 3 in the morning, just appreciate that he, the hot dog guy, and so many others are what make this town.

Here is a view of downtown Athens. It is where the University of Georgia is located. I graduated from it last year. Living in Athens is like living in 2 different cities! When classes are in session there are thousands of students in town. The city feels like a busy place. When the students are away for the summer, Athens feels like a small, sleepy, southern town.
Winters are fairly mild in Athens. We rarely get snow. The summers are very hot with HIGH humidity. Spring and autumn are nice times to be here...unless hot, humid weather doesn't bother you.
