I like Augusta because it has really nice shopping centers and restaurants. The actual downtown area of Augusta is really nice and I enjoy walking and visiting all of the stores, especially the antique shops! Augusta University is a really nice college and the Dental College of Georgia is a great school to pursue your education. I really enjoy the atmosphere of Augusta Georgia and would recommend it to any of my family and friends.
Review Augusta
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!
I moved here to start college in 2010 and have been here ever since. The thing that I love about Augusta is that its not too big and its not too small. What I mean by this is that its not busy and fast paces like Atlanta but there are thing to do here and places to shop. I would recommend this place for people attending college for the first time or people fresh out of grad school, especially in the medical field!
