Later this month, I'll be landing in Atlanta on Friday morning at around 9:30. I plan about an hour to get off the plane and get my rental car (all caryons, so no luggage pickup)... hoping to be on the road by 10:45'ish towards Athens, GA for a weekend event.

Never driven this before. Not from the area (flying from Chicago). About how long can I expect the drive from Atlanta to Athens to be on a late Friday morning? I'm sure it will depend on what route I take, but let's just assume that my buddy is giving me the most logical directions.

I will be studying Google Maps, and will also have a GPS with me as well.

It could take you 30-45 minutes to travel from the airport through Atlanta--to get on I 85 N. Others may have more accurate estimates.

Then another 45 minutes to Athens.

Between an hour and 1 1/2 hours?

Thanks for the responses. Hoping it won't be that bad of a drive.

If there aren't any accidents or road construction projects then it shouldn't be bad. You stay on I85 N for about 33 miles then take 316 for 40 miles.
