Augusta Reviews

All Categories
Augusta is a unique city. The graduate school, Augusta University, has a rich academic history dating back to the 1940's, when my grandfather attending medical school. The city itself continues to be transitional and there are activities for all types of people with varying interests. The Masters brings the city revenue and hype which remains a positive historic event here. Augusta continues to build commercial and residential building with more shopping too!
Review Augusta
Augusta, GA provides a broad range of cuisine, social interactions, and shopping hubs. Although it isn't located in the most desirable geographical site, Augusta manages to obtain a close radius with the biggest landmarks in a 2-3 hour proximity. Making those far-away vacations, only a day trip away. Local schools and family activities may be lacking, however, in Evans township, you'll find an oasis of family fun and knowledge awaiting you. With Fort Gordon's growth, the housing market is spurring, making it an optimal time to purchase that forever home.
Augusta is a place people say they want to leave but never do, though there is always new people moving in. There is always construction. Roads are expanding, schools are being built, and neighborhoods are becoming cramped. For high school and college students, there isn't a lot to do in terms of entertainment besides shopping and going to the movies. Downtown has a few fun bars that become very lively during the holidays. During the summer, downtown Augusta hosts parades and festivals. The Masters brings people in from all over the world. While this may sound enticing, the rest of the year people spend their time talking about how little there is to do in Augusta.
