  • A beautiful botanical garden off of exit 6. Admission and parking is free, so there's no reason not to go! I come by here every once in a while because it makes for great pictures. If there is a fifth tuesday in a month, Classic City Swing hosts a free swing lesson a dance in the greenhouse.
  • I had the honor of marrying my cousin to his fiancĂ©. We were in the Day Chapel. The chapel had a very cozy, intimate, resort in the woods log cabin feel. Downstairs was a beautiful reception hall with open windows and just a beautiful atmosphere. I loved the fact that this chapel has an elevator as well. I will warn you, because the chapel is situated in the woods, there is a lengthy down slopping pathway to the chapel. Be careful walking down.
  • This is my favorite place to run. Each trail has a specific story, like life to each one of it's twists, up and downhills. It's just delightful and my happy place here in Athens.
  • They have extensive grounds with miles of trails and lots of interesting plants. They give you a map, but we were not able to figure out where we were based on the map or the signage. Also, the signage that they do have is getting very worn out and needs to be refurbished. The staff is very knowledgeable, and the grounds are very well kept. A great place to spend a few hours or hike the trails. I would give 5 stars if they had refurbished the signs and if I could find my way around.
  • Beautiful! Extensive, beautiful walking/running trails that go to the river. Amazing gardens to explore. Love the cafe area so much! Also recently have gone to a wedding there- somehow so classy but also casual, amazing, romantic atmosphere.
