Working in Athens
Friendly town, would love to see more businesses and housing catering to the 20-30s working professionals demographic. An entertainment district would be fabulous - there is zero nightlife right now. Brand new high school - diverse student population, both ethnically and socioeconomically. Nice sports facilities. Swan Creek Trail is a gorgeous greenway with crushed gravel - perfect for runners, easy on the joints!
Athens, Alabama is a very serene. There are things to do on the square, a lot of restaurants and school activities to engage in. There are so many friendly faces around as well! It is a safe place, and the school system is splendid and the teachers are magnificent.
Athens Alabama is a great place to live. The people in the community are nice and very connected. The High School that I attended helped get the students more involved with the community. Events are help downtown, these events are ways that the community can come together, have a good time, make friends, provides the community members with a safe and friendly environment for all ages, genders, and races. During my last year of high school, me and my fellow classmates put together a museum to make learning about Alabama fun. I have to say if this community was not connected the way it is then it wouldn’t feel like home.
