Athens, AL

One word comes to mind when thinking about Athens/Limestone County: opportunity. A tightly knit community and picturesque county seat downtown lends to its hometown charm, and yet there are options galore when it comes to things to do and career paths to follow. There are more than 140 restaurants serving up delicious plates of goodness in the area and there are plenty of parks and trails for playing and staying fit. As for career opportunities, great jobs are available in health care/social assistance, manufacturing, you name it. And when it comes to entertainment, all kinds of events are held throughout the year, from the annual Athens Grease Festival in October to the Athens North Pole Stroll in December.
