Arts & Culture Getaway in Athens
Just an hour's drive from Atlanta, the lively college town of Athens has always been a beloved destination among music fans, with a thriving live music scene and noteworthy bands including the B-52s and R.E.M. getting their start there. But of late, Athens' culinary and arts scenes are hitting their stride. A bumper crop of talented chefs is innovating with creative farm-to-table concepts, while new galleries and studios (even a pop-up or two) are at the heart of an exciting, up-and-coming arts scene. At the same time, mainstay cultural icons, including the Georgia Theatre and Georgia Museum of Art have unveiled splendid renovations. These are our picks for the best restaurants, galleries, and places to enjoy live music. –by Blane Bachelor
