The town of Augusta is a close knit community that bonds over Friday night football and good gossip of what happened to who. Everyone knows everybody in this town and do not enjoy outsiders too much. The people are very diverse and you never know what to expect. Small town scandal spreads fast and good news doesn't seem to be celebrated. This town is stuck in their old ways and nothing has changed here in years, except for the roads which are always under construction.
Review Augusta
I've lived in Augusta most of my life. It's a great place to live and raise a family. The public pool is wonderful and a great summer hang out for youngsters. There are several great restaurants also. Some of my favorite ones are Sugar Shane's, Playa Azul, and No Mercy BBQ.
Augusta is a very friendly small town, it has a very clean downtown area, the local shops are very unique. Augusta's Public school system is very good as well, the teacher's are very focused on helping the students graduate.
