You cannot beat the center balcony to watch performances like the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra's New Year's Eve Concert. This is a relatively small yet high quality venue. By the way, parking was easy, too.

UGA and Athens are both conquered by Bulldogs. The Campus is huge. It takes hours to walk the entire area. Football stadium is one of the biggest college stadiums in the US. Old tree groves on campus, a nice park-like scenery.

Good options to catch some world-class artists in Athens, GA. Very appealing for students at the University (read: cheap!). Tickets run out very fast. Book online well in advance.

No one performs better than UGA music majors. Many of my class mates are music majors, and it's always fun to listen to them in a state-of-the art facility.

The UGA Performing Arts Center has the best accoustics of any concert hall in the world. I have heard world class performers tell us that from the stage. The calendar of events always includes some of the very best performers in the field of classical and traditional musicians plus other wonderful entertainers. I have had season tickets for the Second... More
