Along the Hocking River is the college town, Athens. Often known for being the home to Ohio University, Athens also offers outdoor pursuits for adventurers, as well as museums, and shopping. Of course, Athens is also famous for its Halloween Block Party, which attracts thousands of visitors every year and the spooky fun is watched around the world. This is why Athens has gained the title of one of the most haunted cities in the US.
A favorite family day out is to Strouds Run State Park. Here you can enjoy outdoor recreational activities, such as boating, fishing and swimming, as well as explore nature trails. For a relaxing stroll and to experience the heart of Athens, head to Court Street, which is lined with interesting shops, local restaurants, and welcoming coffee shops during the day or vibrant bars and fun clubs by night. If you like antiques, you'll love the Nelsonville Antiques and Vintage Market.
Athens offers a range of hotels from well-known chains, as well as lodges and campgrounds for some family bonding.
For lovely, warm weather, the best time to visit Athens is from June to September. The annual Halloween Block Party is also held during October and takes over Court Street with its frightful festivities.
