Location - Augusta, GA
Georgia’s second oldest and second-largest city, Augusta, is situated on the southern banks of the storied Savannah River. Serving as a halfway point between the Appalachian Mountains to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the south, Augusta is a thriving community built on a solid foundation of local pride and artistic eccentricity.
A timeless locale, a visit to Augusta is a life-altering lesson in Southern hospitality. While other places have undergone cultural revolutions, Augusta underwent a cultural evolution instead, trading big city lights and loud, busy streets for cold sweet tea and a shore-side view of the Savannah River. Downtown, locally owned shops and restaurants mingle in the shade of memorable hangouts, and state-of-the-art galleries beckon artists, lovers, thinkers, and dreamers alike to the South's "Garden City."
Augusta is so much more than just a cozy place to live. Spearheaded by the next generation of musicians, foodies, artists and go-getters, the old city comes to life at night, offering live music, theater shows, and a wealth of hole-in-the-wall eateries built to please. In addition to serving as a haven of technology and the arts, Augusta is also home to some of the nation's most beautiful lakes and trails, offering year-round outdoor adventures.
Sporting life is synonymous with the Augusta name, and the city proper is home to a number of professional baseball, roller derby and rugby teams. Several annual sporting events take place in and around Augusta, including the Ironman 70.3 Augusta triathlon, the Augusta Futurity, and the always exciting Augusta Southern Nationals, dubbed by those in the know as the "World's Richest Drag Boat Race."
On top of world-class entertainment and outdoor sporting, Augusta is also world-renowned as the home of The Masters—an annual golf tournament sometimes dubbed the “Super Bowl” of golf. Every year during the first full week in April, Augusta becomes the golf capitol of the world, welcoming local legends, and long-time favorites back to the prettiest course on Earth.
