The quintessential college town of Athens, Georgia is all about the Bulldogs. This is the location of the University of Georgia, and the city is drenched in red and black. Because it is so student-friendly, it ranks among the most affordable cities in the country -- it is also considered one of the best craft beer cities (Fortune Magazine, 2016) and one of the top college towns. Athens is roughly an hour northeast of Downtown Atlanta.

If you are moving to Athens and want to bring a pet, Athens is absurdly pet-friendly (this is the land of the bulldog, after all). You'll discover everything from dog parks to neighborhood bars where your pet is welcomed. Athens is also bicycle-friendly and pedestrian-friendly, and it has an award-winning transit system. Located in eastern Georgia, Athens offers natural beauty and is a Tree City USA.

Music lovers will appreciate the city's legendary music scene, which developed around 1970 and has produced bands like R.E.M, the B-52s, Widespread Panic, Indigo Girls, and Perpetual Groove. Other notable Athens locations include the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, the UGA Arboretum, and the Georgia Museum of Art.
