The Neighborhood

Located in downtown Athens, residents are within walking distance of the UGA campus and most nightlife Athens has to offer.

Properties located in downtown Athens can either be some of the most sought out properties in Athens, or some of the most avoided. Neighbors include not only college students (UGA or UNG), but also all the bars that are open until 2am every night. I would not expect to have a quiet and secluded place to live because of how loud the streets get each night, but I would expect to always have something to do. You can’t get bored living downtown because there is something going on, whether it’s a concert or party. It’s a place that has a lot of character and no matter who you are you can make it your home.

Taken from the iconic UGA Arch, this is the heart of downtown Athens. The Fred, Athens’ tallest building, can be seen in the back left, as well as the Starbucks on the corner which is a popular destination for most downtown residents.
