I know, I know.
Athens, Georgia…not THAT Athens. You know the one.
In fact, I’ve never been to Greece, but the little city of Athens here in Georgia is simply delightful.
Perhaps I love it so much because I have an affinity for ‘college towns’. You see, I worked in higher education for just over two years upon graduating from Northeastern University. In fact, I worked AT Northeastern University.
Maybe it’s just me, but there’s something refreshing about being on a college campus. There’s learning happening EVERYWHERE. I realize that with my two post-high school degrees, my previous sentence could afford to be a bit more grammatically correct (or at least it sounds/reads funky to me), but it’s the best way I know how to describe it.
Even though most students may grumble and groan their way through college, it’s really a wonderful time. The start-of-fall-semester vibe is one I’ll always love. While we were in Athens in January, that same feeling was emanating the sizable campus. And – we were treated to a January day in the mid-60s. Yes! Can you even believe it?
Thinking about spending a weekend in Athens, Georgia? Well (1), you should! And (2), let me know! I’ll have to follow along via social, of course.
And if it’s an Atlanta city guide you’re looking for – look no further, y’all!
