Excerpt from City of Augusta, GA Website | www.augustaga.org

Augusta epitomizes the Classic South. Founded as a trading post during the British colonial period, the city showcases Antebellum mansions, hallowed historic sites, and quiet, tree-lined avenues perfect for relaxing strolls.

While Augusta celebrates its colorful past, it is equally proud of its exciting present. Nestled on the banks of the mighty Savannah River, the Garden City is a blend of Southern charm and city fun. Arts and culture. Shopping and fine cuisine. Dynamic recreation. In no time at all, you’ll understand why Augusta is the best-kept secret along the Savannah River.
