A personal answer to a personal question...
I love it...not too small, not too big....we have the changing seasons...friendly people, college town, music town, convienient to Atlanta...a couple of hours to the mountains...about 5 hrs to the closest beach...

Athens is full of crime. Take a look at the crime map. And guess what is worse -- realtors in Athens always lie about crime. They say their properties are nice and safe, but just focus on the numbers...anything under $1,200 and you're probability of being robbed is 1 out of 4. Watch out...

It's the coolest day trip city in GA, for my money - great music venues, great scene, great food. A monster univeristy in the middle.

I attached a web reference to a weekly culture magazine's website, the Flagpole. It's the "colorbearer of Athens."

"Athens, Georgia as home to R.E.M. and the B-52s, the city Rolling Stone named "#1 College Music Scene in America."
You may know it for the University of Georgia and Georgia Bulldogs, the "Classic City of the South" where rich tradition at the heart of a hip college town creates a culture unlike any other.
Nestled below the Blue Ridge Mountains, 70 miles from Atlanta, Athens is a harmony of old and new: wedding-perfect Antebellum architecture, contemporary art and eclectic nightlife, a Victorian-era downtown teeming with funky shops and one of the South's most progressive culinary scenes.
