Things to do in Athens Texas

You’ve probably noticed – it’s beautiful around here. Lush, rolling hills unfold into expansive ranches and forests. You can’t go a mile or two without almost tripping into a stock pond or lake. Walk along a tree-covered path in the forests of the East Texas Arboretum. Learn how to bait a hook and then catch “a big one” at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center. “Up” for a challenge? Try the ziplines at New York, Texas Zipline Adventure.

Everything in Athens is nearby. Put on your sneakers and take a walk through town. Along the way, you’ll discover eclectic galleries and shops.

Perhaps you’ve planned to spend your day at a barrel race at the Henderson County Regional Fair Park Complex? Or participating in a race at the Cain Center?  No worries!  When you get a break, spend it relaxing with friends at one of our many eateries.  Or, check out the latest releases on the big screen of Athens Cinema 4.
