I love the small community. I love that neighbors will go the extra mile to help one another. I LOVE the local gym, which is conveniently located. Schools, sports programs, and are highly recommended.
I have lived with my family in Athens for 17 years. We have many friends and know all our neighbors. Our schools are excellent and our community is growing. I can’t think of a better place to live!
Athen's has always had a great small town feel to it. Although the students try to get community members involved in oportunities such as the local food bank, community members could be much more involved.
