Athens Heritage Tour

Example frontpage image

Dig deeper into what makes Athens THE Classic City of the South as we introduce you to this vibrant Mecca of the arts, culture, and classic Southern living. Begin your tour inside Athens’ oldest surviving residence – the home to two University Presidents – and learn how this great college town began in the up-country that was once Native American territory. Then board the bus for a one-hour overview of magnificent Antebellum homes and historic neighborhoods with a wide variety of architectural styles; see the eclectic Downtown, the University of Georgia campus, the world’s only “tree that owns itself” and double-barreled cannon. Allow 90 minutes. COST: $15 per person.
