Things to Do
Encouraging Exploration of Our Nature, History, Festivals, and Food
In Athens and Limestone County, a typical day can start with a quiet morning walk on any of our 17 trails, followed by a stop by one of our local eateries for a hearty Southern-style breakfast or brunch, then a bit of shopping for curated goods with local retailers. A visit to a museum or the library offers the chance to learn something new. Town and country drives will wind past antebellum homes, agritourism destinations, and opportunities for bird watching, hunting and fishing, and horseback riding. If that’s not enough, the day can conclude with a festival, rodeo, tractor pull, or sporting event.
