A message from the Athens-Limestone
County Tourism department.
What turns a city into
a place you want to call home? What gives it its edge
over its rivals? When every city begins to look a bit
alike, what lets some cities either big or small creates
a special allure, develop as a powerful brand, or just
become known as the ideal place to do business?
So what makes a city fail or work, is if it can deliver
Quality of Life!
Quality of Life is a reflection of both the hard and the
softer elements of city and rural living. And it's not
just about wealth. This is about shared experiences - a
community that's inclusive, but works for all.
So it's kayaking in the shadow of our beautiful Elk
River. It's about Mooresville’s quiet historic village,
nestled between larger cities continuing to inspire
others with their Early 19th century architecture.
Though we have many challenges facing our communities;
how do we maintain the city's heart, create homes for
all, and add to our city’s density without buckling
services; all while maintaining life and vitality on our
Parts of the solutions are simple in that many of the
things that create quality of life are inexpensive, such
as places to assemble while enjoying a beautiful water
fountain, or biking the many miles of charted trails.
Fortunately, we have begun expanding on our Southern
Makers with independent retail and locales where you can
still craft foods and merchandise and have personal
tours at such locations as Belle Chevre Creamery and
Robin Wade furniture.
However, our city also needs to hold on to what makes
her unique. That's why people seek out the distinctive
festivals like our Fiddlers Convention and Storytelling
and the unusual such as our Grease Festival and our
culture in our Alabama Veterans Museum & Athens State
We are blessed with talented musicians performing at our
monthly concert series in the park and artists teaching
and delighting us in our High Cotton Arts. We also
provide oral historic history during our Cemetery
Strolls and Historic Walks.
This is why people fall for our communities, which in
some ways, have lived past other’s sell-by dates.
Athens-Limestone County Tourism is anxious to show you
what they will enjoy bringing to our county in 2016.
Each year they are preparing new and exciting
experiences for our communities and our guests. Helping

physically and passionately and to convey the quality of
