The Cliff Family has been in Athens, Georgia for 3 months, and we are loving every moment of it. I wrote a little earlier this week about our church, but I thought I’d do a special Friday Bag of some of our favorite things.
Downtown Athens – This may be the most attractive part of coming for a visit. There are great restaurants, great bars, great music, and eccentric happenings on most every street corner. We love, love, love spending date nights there, and walking the sidewalks with our kids.
The State Botatanitcal Garden of Georgia – We’ve been here a couple of times, and love all of the nature and greenery we’ve missed for so long. It’s all that you’d expect from a garden…it’s got flowers and trees and streams and more flowers.
University of Georgia - As of yet we’ve not been to Sanford Stadium for a game, but we have been there for an after-the-game event. Most of our experience at UGA has been just walking around on campus and reading markers outside of 100 year old buildings; but one of the best parts of the campus is that it backs up right beside the fun downtown!
The People – Wish I had a link to them, but I don’t. Our family has found a safe place to land, and we’re excited about all that the future holds for us here in Athens. I promise to not fill the website with reasons why where I live is so great, but once every few years will work…right?
Here is another great city guide to Athens. Enjoy! http://www.designsponge.com/2012/10/athens-ga-city-guide.html
