Augusta Reviews

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!
Augusta is an exciting city with lots and lots to offer. There is always something going on everynight in and around the area. You can leave work, head home for a quick shower, head out and attend musicals, plays, dinner and theatres, and concerts. Augusta is surrounded by some of the best restaurants like Olive Gaden, Ruby Tuesdays, Outback Steakhouse, PF Changs, and so many more to name. We have the best hospitals that offer the best care and great colleges such as Augusta University, Brenau University, and GMC. If you love shopping then you should visit our Mall of Augusta, it is full of everything you need and offers plenty of eateries upstairs. Augusta has a lot to offer, so if you would love a tour just reach out to the welcome center and get aquainted, you may fall in love.
My family & I have been living in Augusta for a few years now and just like any city, traffic gets pretty hectic around a certain time through out the day. Some of the public schools have pest problems & needs better administration through out the Richmond County Board of Education. T. W. Josey Comprehensive High needs way more rennovations & repairs done through out their school building and new technology, books, & above all, desks to replace broken ones with sharp edges of metal that has abraded and perforated my skin several times this year alone.
