There is plenty of parking in the immediate area. Walking and biking are very common, and it is safe to do so. There is no public transportation in the immediate area because it is such a small town. However, in neighboring areas there is quite a lot of public transportation available that is convenient. The area does not have that much traffic.
Review Bishop
Great little town 15min from Athens. It is located in Oconee County which has one of the best school systems in Georgia. The only nightlife is in Athens.
The immediate area still has a somewhat small town feel. There are a couple gas stations, pharmacy type stores, and a grocery store. Good shopping and eating is only about 15-20 minutes away. There you have Walmart, Kroger, Target, clothing and shoe stores, sporting goods stores, etc.
