Nestled in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, Athens began as a small agricultural center with history that dates back to the 1800’s. Over the years, Athens has grown industrially but has maintained the attitude that gained it the nickname of "The Friendly City." Athens is a clean well maintained city that retains a certain amount of charm There are a number of historic homes scattered about the city; a constant reminder of bygone days. The downtown business area, with its quaint buildings and shops, also offers a glimpse of yesteryear when things were simpler and life was less hectic.
There are many fun things that go on in Athens throughout the year. It is in the valley centered between Knoxville and Chattanooga. The Smokey Mountains are the backdrop of a beautiful Athens scene. There is so much to do in every direction. Interstate 75 streams North and South on the West Side of Athens accompanied my great restaurants and hotels.
