The Wooden Nickle Welcome is a program created by Athens-Limestone Tourism to meet the needs of offering coupons to our Hospitality Partners and a way to fund raise for some of our programs and projects.
Why a wooden nickle?
The Wooden Nickle Welcome is a unique approach to a coupon book or sheet. The wooden nickle can fit in the pocket or be dropped in a purse or travel bag and withstand the rigors of traveling. The wooden nickle can't tear or fall apart after becoming water-logged - it's intact and ready to use.
Where can I use the wooden nickle?
Select Hospitality Partners featured on the Wooden Nickle page, offer specials to coin holders. You have to have and present your Wooden Nickle Welcome coin to receive the offers. That's the perk - only Wooden Nickle Welcome coins get the deals.
How do I get a Wooden Nickle Welcome coin?
Visit the Athens-Limestone Visitors Center at 100 North Beaty Street in Athens any Monday through Friday from 8:00AM through 5:00PM and purchase a coin for $5.00 (plus tax).
Who does my purchase benefit?
