Athens-Clarke County, Georgia (formerly just Athens, Georgia) is a unified city-county in the northeastern part of the state of Georgia.

The University of Georgia is located here and as of the 2000 census, the consolidated city-county (including all of Athens-Clarke County except Winterville and a part of Bogart) had a total population of 100,266.

The Athens music scene grew in the early 1970s with Ravenstone, a regionally popular band sometimes called "one of the godfathers of Athens rock," and later during the 1980s with R.E.M. and the B-52's. Other bands that have made their mark include Indigo Girls, Matthew Sweet, Widespread Panic, Danger Mouse, Drive-By Truckers, Elf Power, Azure Ray, and Of Montreal. R.E.M. members Michael Stipe, Mike Mills and Bill Berry still have homes in Athens. The Butthole Surfers briefly resided in nearby Winterville.

Athens is a college town, that has a lively art scene, music scene and intellectual environment. The city is home to numerous eclectic music venues, restaurants, bars, and coffee shops that cater to its creative climate.

The city is home to independent publisher Hill Street Press and well-known authors with previous or current residence in the city include Pulitzer Prize winners Deborah Blum and Edward Larson, as well as Judith Ortiz Cofer, Reginald McKnight and Coleman Barks.
