“If warm weather is what you crave, Athens is the place. Sports, arts, and outdoor events all present themselves in this college town with lower-than-average cost of living. But don’t worry about the students — while they keep Athens young (the median age is 25), Athens is a favorite state of AARP, who have ranked it one of the best small towns for retirement.”
