Thanks for the excellent, quirky suggestions.

As part of an Obscura visit to Athens, I would also visit the Double-Barreled Cannon and head to the Hargrett Collection at the UGA Library to take a look at a book bound in human skin. The Athens Music History Walking tour has a number of interesting spots, such as the Murmurs Trestle and St. Mary's Episcopal Church (or at least what's left of it). While the Georgia Museum of Natural History isn't quite "ready for primetime" with dedicated exhibit space, they do have a display room on campus that's open on Saturdays, with some pretty odd and interesting specimins. Sad but true that real record stores are becoming an oddity-- Athens still has two! What about discovering traditional medicinal uses of plants at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia's Heritage Garden? Athens is full of cool spots like these!
