This category is for websites about information and organizations related specifically to the city of Athens. Athens is a unified city with Clarke County. A consolidated city–county is a city and county that have been merged into one unified jurisdiction. As such, it is simultaneously a city, which is a municipal corporation; and a county, which is an administrative division of a state. The boundaries of the City of Athens are also those of Clarke County. The government is referred to as "Athens-Clarke County." Since the boundaries are the same for the city and county most of the sites are listed under the locality of Athens.
