What Bert Has To Say About Athens-Clarke County Metro Area


Athens is a clean, attractive and progressive town with a distinct southern flair. The local University of Georgia is the centerpiece of the area’s economy. Athens is noted as a center for pop music—REM and the B-52’s are from here—and the entertainment scene includes plenty of live music. Other arts and cultural amenities emanate from the university. The area has some interesting architecture and building projects, including a 10-year old Victorian-look “Classic Center” used as a convention center and concert hall, funded by tax initiatives.
