These College Towns Are Worth A Visit

There are a number of college towns from coast to coast that are full of delicious restaurants, beautiful scenery and good times. Each one of these charming towns are definitely worth visiting once in your lifetime.

Athens, Georgia

The southern town of Athena, Georgia is home to a diverse art culture along with some award-winning eateries. All visitors must catch a live performance at the Georgia Theatre then head over to the Georgia Museum of Art. If you are looking for something a little crazier, visit this town around football season. Rowdy crowds take over the streets, plus if the team wins, the nightlife is always full of celebrations. When you aren’t cheering on football or catching some live-music, dine at one of Athens’ world-class restaurants serving up only the best Southern cooking.
