What is the pros and cons of Athens? Very curious, when looking stuff up on Google it keeps popping up.

I'm not from Athens- I'm about two hours away in the Augusta area, but the immediate con in my mind for Athens is that the University of GA is located right in the middle of downtown. That's 40,000 college students milling around and basically being the main economic driver in the city. Athens isn't entirely a college town, but it's very close to being one.

Personally, I don't like the closed in feel college towns have, but many people don't mind it- even enjoy it so it may be a pro for you instead of a con. While I'm really not trying to knock Athens I do just find it to be a little rough around the edges as well...

Another con for me is that it has no interstate running through or near it. Most of the roads leading into it are the small backroad type which makes it feel disconnected.

For pros... not too sure. I guess they would be that it's an hour away from ATL so if you want a big city it isn't far and a stable economy based on the university. Cool shops and restaurants (once again because of the university).

I'm not too sure about local attractions since I don't live there, but as an outsider that's my quick analysis.
OP, have you looked into the Augusta area at all? Just curious to know your thoughts if you have.
