Athens Real Estate & Homes for Sale in Georgia

Athens, Georgia, is a vibrant city that defines sophisticated Southern culture. Located in a picturesque spot just below the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, this college town has just over 100,000 residents. It offers a unique blend of Southern heritage and contemporary entertainment along with Southern charm in one of the great college towns in not only the Southeast, but the entire country.

Athens is a wonderful place to raise a family and the type of place where the pace of life remains a little slower than the big city. In fact, Athens was recently named as the best small metro area in the country for relocating families and has been named one of the best places to retire by MONEY magazine. Many prospective buyers will find that Athens has a fine selection of housing options available throughout the community, with single-family residences, condos and townhouses dominating the market at affordable prices.

This historic city offers many opportunities to experience the great outdoors in Georgia's rolling Piedmont region. Walk, jog, bike, or rollerblade through this area of lush vegetation at Memorial Park, the North Oconee River Greenway, Oconee Forest Park, Sandy Creek Park, and the State Botanical Garden of Georgia. All are filled with trails to explore and sites to see. There are also several golf courses in the area and sports fans will be in heaven as the University of Georgia Bulldogs has one of the best athletic programs in the country and participate in the highly competitive Southeastern Conference.

Athens has so much to offer and once you have lived here, you will come to agree with the popular local boast, ?Heaven is a local call from Athens.?
