My daughter and her girlfriend will be moving from NYC to Athens this fall. They've done a lot of research and have found Athens to be at the top of their list. From their research they like-
1. It has a Trader Joes--both of them will be transferring there
2. Its diverse-they're gay and my daughter is white and her GF is black.
3. The property is affordable-They are looking to spend around $200K or so
4. There are things to do-hike, music scene, coffee shops
5. Its a younger demographic-My daughter is 21 and her GF is 27
6. Schools-They will eventually adopt- It seems Oconee has good schools?

And as a mom, Im looking for a safe area for them

They are looking at a few areas but have never visited Athens before. They plan to visit in July and then buy in Sept.

What are your thoughts on these areas-
Barber St
S Milledge and S Lumpkin St
W Lake Dr and Milledge Cir
S Lumpkin St and Greenwood Dr
City Center
Barnett Shoals/College Station
Oconee St and Poplar St
W Lake Dr and Westview Dr
W Broad St and Hawthorne Ave

Given the info above, where would you suggest they start looking?
