Augusta, the Garden City, has a small-town atmosphere with big-city resources. The city borders South Carolina with the Savannah River providing a beautiful, natural boundary. The larger community is diverse, offering a pleasurable mix of city life and country comfort with a growing skyline, but still plenty of peaceful, friendly neighborhoods and an affordable cost of living. Blankets of azaleas carpet the city each spring, and thousands of trees emblazon the area with color season after season. The Augusta Canal and North Augusta Greenway features walking and biking trails that offer miles of scenic exercise, recreation and relaxation.
Augusta is the cultural entertainment and shopping center for the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA), which encompasses 18 counties and more than half a million people, 80 percent of whom live in the metropolitan area. Attractions in the city include the prestigious Masters Golf Tournament, and annual international rowing regatta, year round Riverwalk activities and Lake Thurmond, with a 1,200-mile shoreline. The city has a minor-league baseball team affiliated with the Atlanta Braves organization, an opera association, community theaters, a symphony orchestra and a ballet company among other offerings.
