With music, theatre, and food, there are so many different ways to have a good time while still being able to spread a little holiday cheer.  Plan your Georgia holiday getaway to Athens, GA today!

If you're a fan of the book that's been flying off the shelves, you're going to love what's coming to The Classic Center Friday December 6th at 8 p.m. 50 Shades! The Musical is a hilarious parody of the 50 Shades of Grey phenomenon. A sexy and hysterical musical romp, this is the show everyone is going to be talking about so grab your tickets now! It's going to be a night of music, dancing, and lots of laughs... what more could you possibly want?!

Now that the holidays are here, holiday shopping is sure to be on your mind. It's a tough task to find something unique for all the people in your life, but Indie South Fair's Holiday Hooray! is here to save the day! This Saturday 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sunday noon - 5 p.m., come on out to the Boulevard Historic District (660 Chase Street) to see a diverse selection of handcrafted items that make perfect gifts for those people who are so hard to shop for.

The State Botanical Garden of Georgia's Annual Holiday Open House is here and it's sure to kick start your holiday season into high gear! Come on out to the Botanical Garden on Sunday from 2 - 5 p.m. and experience the tropical conservatory all decked out in festival decorations. Great family Christmas photo opp!  Live music will be performed by the Georgia Children's Chorus, Solstice Sisters, and Classic City Band. There will be three puppet shows in the Children's Classroom. And that's all not even mentioning that Mr. and Mrs. Claus will be there to take pictures with the children and chat about their Christmas wishes. It's going to be a very special day, one that you and your family are sure to add to your holiday traditions!
