Head to Bear Hollow

For a fun way to spend an afternoon, the Bear Hollow Zoo is worth checking out. A smaller zoo, it is free to the public as part of the Memorial Park, it is well-kept and houses many animals that were rescues, and also allows visitors to get up close and personal with a variety of animals, form black bears and deer to alligators and owls. If that weren’t enough, for a fee, you can enjoy an educational session led by a zoo guide with three animals of your choice! The zoo also frequently holds exciting events like celebrating various animals’ birthdays and holidays in theme with certain animals, like Snake Day around St. Patrick’s Day. Located just ten minutes from our downtown Athens hotel, the Bear Hollow Zoo promises a fun-filled afternoon for everyone! 

Address: 293 Gran Ellen Drive, Athens
