The city of Athens has a population of approximately 22,000 people and is located in Limestone County, which has a population of around 76,000. Limestone County is bordered by the rolling foothills of the Appalachian Mountains to the North and the Tennessee River to the South. The area offers an abundance of water recreation, hiking, golfing, and family oriented sports activities.

Athens is the county seat of Limestone county and is a short 1.5 miles West of Interstate 65. In addition to activities in town, our proximity to the Interstate brings many other options for activities. Huntsville, AL, the "Space Capital of the South" is a short 30 minute drive. There you will find many shopping, entertainment, and cultural attractions. We are 90 minutes from both Birmingham, AL and Nashville, TN.

Athens offers an award-winning public school system and access to several state universities. Athens State University, established in 1822, is Alabama's oldest institution of higher learning.

While Athens has an agricultural history, in recent years Athens has attracted major industry that has diversified the population. With all the diversification Athens has to offer, no wonder Athens is truly a city of Southern Splendor.
