Houses close to downtown?

Asked by Jeanne Thomas, Lake Worth, FL Wed May 9, 2012

My mother and I are considering moving to Athens. I am in a wheelchair and she is elderly. Can we find a single family house within a mile or so of stores? Is there a handicapped bus transport service?

Beechwood Hills is also a great neighborhood close to the shops at Beechwood, including Kroger, Steinmart, CVS and several smaller stores and restaraunts. The City Bus line run through the commercial district. welcome to Athens.

Yes you can, there are several areas that could work for you depending on your budget, ARMC and Normaltown come to mind or Five Points. I'm not aware of a particular handicap bus transport but I'm sure there is one.

Athens is a great eclectic community and you will find that many neighborhoods have great accessibility to shops/restaurants.

I hope this helps, all the best with your house hunting and relocation planning!

I live in Athens and am happy to help any way I can.
