Augusta Reviews

3 reviews
Living in Augusta is what you make it. If you want a vibrant night life "swipe left". For a small town, Augusta is well equipped. We have a doctors office staffed by UW-Health, a pharmacy, grocery store, and several decent places to eat. For families we have a bowling alley, multiple campgrounds, and multiple fishing holes. All around Augusta is a great place to spend a weekend or raise a family.
Review Augusta
For bigger and better jobs, Eau Claire is the place to go. More opportunities there than in small town August
Many mom-and-pop shops and bars to go to. Also local restaurants.
