Take a Hike!
If you’re feeling like taking a break from the city and getting in touch with nature, you might be surprised to find the Sandy Creek Nature Center is less than ten minutes from our downtown Athens hotel. Sandy Creek includes more than four miles of nature trails to be either hiked or biked as well as an education and visitor center that boasts live reptiles, amphibians, marine and freshwater aquariums, interactive natural history exhibits, a planetarium and an incredible resource library. Visitors can also take guided tours through the park with fun and knowledgeable staff members. In Athens, you don’t have to go far to find what you’re looking for, and if you’re looking for the great outdoors, well look no further.
