Athens County

Athens County is nestled deep in the Appalachian foothills of Southeast Ohio. The lively arts and music scene entertains locals and visitors alike all year round. The eclectic shopping and dining scene is a result of the presence of a large university and rich Appalachian heritage. Hunting, kayaking, bouldering, hiking, cycling, and mountain biking are just some of the most popular outdoor activities.
