Local Travel Spanning Athens and Ohio with the Athens County Visitors Bureau

Staying up to date on local travel opportunities can be tough. Just when you think you’ve seen all the local gems around Athens and Ohio, you’re surprised by something new and fun to explore. The Athens County Visitors Bureau has a wealth of information to guide you through age-friendly adventures. Join us Thursday, February 20, at 2 p.m. at OhioHealth O’Bleness Hospital Lower Level Room 8 to spark ideas for your next adventure, whether it’s around Athens or across the state. Questions are welcome and refreshments will be available.

UpBEAT is a program for those 55 years and older. Membership is free. To join UpBEAT and receive our monthly newsletter, or for program information, call Caitlin Bond, UpBEAT Program Coordinator, at (740) 566.4680.

UpBEAT Food for Thought Program provides free health education workshops and presentations for adults ages 55 and older. The Food for Thought Program meets the third Thursday of each month at 2 p.m., usually at OhioHealth O’Bleness Hospital and the fourth Thursday of the month, for months of January, March, May, July, and September at 2 p.m. at the OhioHealth Nelsonville Health Center.

During winter weather please note, UpBEAT programming is cancelled if the Athens City School District cancels for severe weather. We also cancel our programs if conditions are dangerous for older adults to leave their homes, for example if there is ice on roads or sidewalks or the temperature is below 15 degrees. When an activity is cancelled due to weather conditions, it will meet again at the next regularly scheduled time. When possible, the speaker or activity for the cancelled program will be rescheduled for the next available date. Except for the Saturday exercise class at O’Bleness, cancellations will be announced on WATH 970 AM.
