The Hilton Garden Inn located in downtown Athens, GA, is expensive, but it's well worth the cost, in my opinion. The room I stayed in offered a king size, very comfortable bed, coffee and tea, a microwave and a refridgerator, plus a nice view of the Classic Center, which was the reason I was in town, to judge a competition. It is a bit noisy at times staying there since this is a college town, and you are in the center of downtown Athens, but the upside to that is that you are just a few short steps away from great restaurants and fun shops.

In January 1784, the first permanent non-native settlement began when German immigrant, William Dunson, was awarded a land grant.

In 1808 a trading post ...

Then an international, flower, shade, native, an old fashioned settlers garden and a lovely group of sculptures at the visitor center. We could have stayed much longer. But as it was the end of the day we went to a converted garage called Teds for pizza, Happy Hour Beer at 2:50 and pizza... It's was nice as we could sit outside and people ...
