Athens is cool, really neat downtown immediately adjacent to UGA. There's some modern residential going up and it has some brands that larger cities don't due to its status as a quintessential college town (e.g., Hotel Indigo). The suburban areas are just like those anywhere. They have a greenway along the river I wanted to explore while there but didn't get the chance to. The only thing about Athens is its relative isolation; I always feel like it takes almost forever to get anywhere else, even Commerce.

I've lived in Georgia all my life and I've been working in Athens for the last few months. One thing that I've noticed about Athens is that there are many very modest houses: small in size, spare in architecture. Not long ago I found myself on a clearly fashionable near-suburban street, and among the lovelier homes there were also tiny bungalows of unpainted concrete block-- with lushly-kept yards! There are other areas where new homes have been built on the footprint of torn-down homes in traditionally-developed old neighborhoods.

As others have said, the downtown is quite vibrant, and all in all Athens is an impressive town architecturally. I've become quite fond of it myself.
