Overview of Athens

Those interested in Athens apartments for rent will likely be attracted by the city's eclectic mix of old and new. Athens' Victorian-era downtown area is offset by the progressive art, music and culinary scenes that stay fresh partly because of the vibrant collegiate presence - the University of Georgia is located here, and it is site of the first chartered university in the nation. Athens is well known as the hometown of the B-52s, and the city is full of a rich tradition mixed with the vibrancy of a college town that creates a culture unlike any other.
