The Athens Heritage Tour: Experience All the Charm the South Has to Offer

Athens is, in our humble opinion, one of the most beautiful and historic cities anywhere in the great state of Georgia. This can be hard to appreciate during the summer months, when you’d sooner step out onto the sun than leave the air conditioned comfort of your hotel room, but now that fall is upon us, it’s the perfect time to enjoy the Athens Heritage Tour, a 90-minute guided tour offered by the Athens Welcome Center every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday starting at 1 P.M. Your tour will kickoff at the oldest home in Athens, then make its way through the charming downtown area and across the University of Georgia Campus. Along the route, you’ll experience the antebellum elegance of Taylor Grady House, the area’s only National Landmark location, and you’ll also be treated to the sight of the world’s one and only double barrel cannon.
