For nature lovers, Athens offers a host of outdoor attractions. The State Botanical Garden of Georgia is a beautiful oasis with walking trails, blooming gardens, and educational programs. The nearby Sandy Creek Park provides opportunities for hiking, fishing, and picnicking. Residents can also enjoy the peaceful setting of Lake Herrick, perfect for kayaking and paddleboarding.

Beyond the city limits, there are several charming towns and communities within a short drive from Athens.
