As someone who has been a resident of this small town for roughly ten years now, I have become familiar with almost all of the various things around. I have attended the high school here before all the renevations and it was rough; the classrooms and facilities needed major help. I wish North Augusta had more activities to do for families and teenagers. Besides a few restaurants, there really is not much to do. Although, the new baseball stadium has been a great spot recently! Overall, this town feels "homey" and that's what I love about it!

The city of North Augusta offers a multi-faceted culture and an wide range of ethnic demographics; however the amenities, atmosphere and dining opportunities do not support the diversities or multiplicity. As I researched and explored the city's offerings I found that the limit of ethnic cuisines leaves a sour taste in my mouth. With the exception of fast food chain stores, the local favorites are at best involving grease, poor table etiquette and unprofessional service. In a city so close to the landmark host to the famed Masters golf tournament, you would assume the city would reflect a more impressive approach to quality and service.
I love how small the town is and how everybody just knows everybody. I work at the Chick-Fil-A in North Augusta, and you meet so many new people that have come from all over the world. Everyone is so nice and genuine. It is a great place to live. I have been here my whole life and do not plan on straying too far away!
