We love to batter and fry standard fare like okra and fish, but we don’t mind expanding the technique to Twinkies and Snicker bars. In Athens, Alabama, we have embraced our love of fried foods and the Greek origination of our name by hosting the Athens Grease Festival in downtown Athens. Eating healthy is important, but we have set aside this time for our taste buds to enjoy the culinary creations we love to batter, dip, and fry. Grab a bed sheet, create your own toga, and bring your taste buds to the city that knows how to celebrate being a classic, living Southern, and having character. October 19th . 11 a.m. - 7 p.m.

Traveling around America and seeing the beauty and history of this great nation.
Mentone Inn B & B. The hospitality of this small mountain town is great. The innkeeper is so nice and the inn is within walking distance of the Wildflower Cafe for dinner. This historic Inn is only a short drive from two beautiful waterfalls and numerous overlooks. Oh! Not to mention the superb breakfast you will be served.
Following a back road or highway instead of the interstate.This will allow you to see so much of an area that you would not normally see otherwise.
