Living in Athens, TX was a fun experience because of all of the scenic views that are offered as well as places to go fishing. There were also many different places to scuba dive and ride boats, etc. My famiily and I like to participate in lots of outdoor activities so if you are into that, I would recommend this city. The weather is decent, it can get very hot some Summer days, but overall tolerable if you know how to keep cool properly.

The best places in Athens, TX was called the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center in Texas. This place was an all in one stop shop. They offered aquariums, parks, museums and a place for you and your family to fish. The view was amazing here. In addition another beautiful place my family and I enjoyed was a winery called 3 P’s in a vine. This winery had amazing views, large landscape and beautiful setup. This is a small establishment, but the people were very personable and kind.
