Athens: Athens Scuba Park

Athens has been famous for clay bricks since the 1880s. In the 1980s, local scuba-diving fans turned a clay quarry into Athens Scuba Park. Novice and expert divers ply the crystal-clear, seven-acre lake where they explore country music legend Ray Price’s tour bus, Clint Eastwood’s houseboat and a sunken Lockheed C-140 airliner.
