Firstly, apologies for not writing yesterday. I had every intention to but unfortunately the day took a different turn.
Night 1 was most awesome. We had beer in Flicker which is next to The 40 Watt and eventually moved inside. We discovered that PBR (our favourite beer from the previous trip) was sold in 24oz cans. Yes, that's bigger than …
After arriving and unpacking, we headed out in search of food. Ended up in an amazing little diner called Clocked! The burger and fries I had (Bronco burger inc bacon, gouda cheese and onion rings) was possibly the best I've ever eaten. Free refills on sodas too, friendly customer service, we in England could learn a lot! From there we headed next …
Not really the right term, but after a 4:30 alarma 3 hour wait around for flights eaten up with window shopping, eating expensive but mediocre breakfast, security was a breeze and the flight was good. Warnings of headwinds threatened turbulence, 232mph recorded at one time!!! Skipped the plane curry breakfast, dozed sporadically, watched films as …

TravelPod Member ReviewsHilton Garden Inn Athens Downtown
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.
