About Athens, Georgia
Nestled in the northeastern reaches of the Peach State, Athens, Georgia is an unmistakably southern city steeped in vibrant college culture. While the spirited city is perhaps most known for the University of Georgia, the state’s largest public research university and the birthplace of public higher education in America, it’s also home to a thriving music scene, award-winning restaurants and a host of other attractions.
The Athens, Georgia live music scene is one of a kind. Athens-based acts like R.E.M., The B-52’s, Drive-By Truckers and Widespread Panic have gone on to achieve international acclaim. Today, Athens' vibrant music scene continues to thrive with regular performances at venues throughout the city. The Foundry offers an intimate, historic setting where attendees can absorb a variety of music, from jazz to Americana. The Classic Center Theatre is a spacious venue that regularly hosts the Athens Symphony Orchestra for those who prefer classical music, Broadway shows and more.
Getting to Athens
Athens is a little over an hour to Atlanta, two hours to the North Georgia mountains, and four hours to Savannah and coastal Georgia beaches. Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL) is located approximately 60 miles from Athens. Groome Transportation runs an hourly shuttle service direct from the airport to the conference lodgings.
Groome Transportation provides direct shuttle access from the UGA Georgia Center to ATL airport. You must make shuttle reservations online or by calling at least 24 hours in advance to avoid potential delays at your time of travel.
