Summer & Fall

Summer Beach Fall Activites in and around Athens Summer Creek

While a lot of my time in the summer is spent working, the freedom from a class schedule allows me to do things I normally can't during the rest of the year. Being home from Athens means time spent with family and with friends from home whom I rarely see. I enjoy being able to sit down to dinner with my family and spend time talking with them. My friends and I often take long drives, sometimes to certain destinations - the park, the lake, nearby towns - and sometimes to nowhere in particular. Summer is also a good time to do things I don't have much time for while I'm at school like reading for pleasure, catching up on TV shows, and playing video games. Nothing is as relaxing, though, as sitting outside or floating in the pool on a Summer night.

By the time Summer is nearing its end, I start to miss Athens. The start of a new year is always full of promise and I look forward to starting classes again. Fall is my favorite season in Athens. Everyone is excited to be back and there's no lack of things to do. Athens is beautiful when the leaves start to change and it provides the best scenery for hiking. The temperature finally starts to drop and there's no better way to spend an evening than sitting on the patio at Jackie O's.
