Top 5 Reasons to Live in Athens, Alabama
- Metro but not metro! Athens is a blend of small town atmosphere with big city style. Located in the western half of the Huntsville Metro area, the city is approximately 87 percent urban and is conveniently located at the intersections of I-65, U.S. 31, and U.S. 72. The University of Athens and the Athens-Limestone Hospital are here, but Athens also claims four historic districts and the Swan Creek Greenway National Recreation Trail.
