Tips & Tricks for the Perfect Parents' Weekend

Hallie Schuster spills some of her favorite spots to take her parents' when they come to town!

"If you are reading this post, you probably agree some of the best restaurants in Athens for college students are Pauley’s, Fuzzy’s, Cali n’ Titos and Pita Pit. Between these plus every “taqueria” and burger joint, we are pretty much set for all the college-student-budget friendly meals we need when the in-house meal plan ends every weekend. If you are anything like me, you might be thinking this sounds fine and all, but there are so many nice restaurants in Athens to explore! I am here to tell you that those yummy, slightly more upscale restaurants do exist, and there is actually a perfect weekend to try them all without breaking your bank...parents weekend!!

Here are some recommendations of parents-weekend type restaurants and fun activities to explore on and around campus.

More upscale parents weekend type-restaurants:


Five Bar

The National

Seabear Oyster Bar

Marker 7 Coastal Grill

Last Resort

Five and Ten

LRG Provisions


Fun activities:

Check out Sanford Stadium

Silent Disco

Concert at the Georgia Theatre

Picnic on north campus

Georgia Museum of Art

Play games at Rook and Pawn

Football game in the Fall

Basketball and/or baseball game in the Spring

And last but certainly not least, take advantage of the events your sorority has planned for you! One (or a team) of your sisters has worked their booty off to plan a great weekend for you and your family, so show them some support and have fun while doing it."
