Normaltown is home to the University of Georgia's Health Science Campus.
A local favorite, The Athens Farmers Market, offers locally grown produce, live music, fresh flowers and hand crafted gifts most Saturdays of the year in Bishop Park.
Many families enjoy pizza at Automatic, or tacos on the open-air roof at Agua Linda.
Several of the locally owned bars in Normaltown attract an early evening crowd and casual late afternoon gatherings on the side walks.
Normaltown is the gateway of many of the serious cycling routes that head out Prince Avenue and into Jackson County.
