Athens is a great place to base yourself while you are in Cedar Creek Reservoir as many of the city’s most popular attractions are nearby. Two sights that should be on every visitor’s list is the wonderful Henderson County Historical Museum and the ever-popular Athens City Park. Two other worthy points of interest you’ll find nearby Athens are the Athens Scuba Park and Central Park.
If the sun is out, follow the locals and head outside to the local natural destinations. If you want to rest a while in a little tranquility explore the East Texas Arboretum and the Cain Park II.
At the end of a day discovering the sights, sounds and smells of Athens, get a good nights sleep at one of the area’s hotels or serviced apartments. Check out the rooms, rates and amenities at the Super 8 Athens, the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Athens, or the Americas Best Value Inn.
