ATHENS, GA (CBS46) -

GQ's June issue names Athens as one of the best college towns in the nation to visit when the students are gone for the summer.

Athens specifically won the Indie Spirit Award for Best Long Weekend and GQ writers sketched out a detailed schedule for potential visitors to peruse while staying in the "red and black" city.

In the article, GQ recommends three-day-long shenanigans. On Friday "loosen up" with libations from the Normal Bar, swing by the 40 Watt to catch a show, then "stumble home" to the Hotel Indigo. Then on Saturday sift through Agora, a curated flea market. On Sunday, grab dinner at The National and pop by the art-house theater, Cine, next door.
