We Enjoy Visiting Local Attractions Near Athens

Dominion Senior Living of Athens is fortunate to be located in one of the most beautiful areas of Tennessee. In addition to being a short distance away from Knoxville and Chattanooga, we have many opportunities to visit local attractions and support the community of Athens and other surrounding areas.

Our Visit to the Winery

Most recently, on a beautiful Sunday evening, we took a group to a neighboring area to watch the sold-out play “Over the River and Through the Woods” starring one of our Resident Assistants, Lori Fritts. The residents enjoyed seeing Lori in a different light as she shared her passion for acting with the attendees.

One of our residents’ favorite trips was to a local gem, the Savannah Oaks Winery. Betty Davis, who owns Savannah Oaks, was ready for us with a wonderful assortment of local cheeses and meats along with a ginger ale and lemonade concoction to quench their thirst on the gorgeous spring day. Our residents also got to sample several of the Savannah Oaks wines and enjoyed spending time with each other and telling stories.

It’s important to support our local community and enjoy the beautiful surroundings we are so lucky to be able to call home. Make sure to find us on Facebook and find out where we will go next!
