I have lived here my whole life. It’s a great community to raise a family. We are a small town but with lots of fun things to do and see. My favorite, the Greenway. It’s a path that goes all around our city made for walker, runners, biking and more. You’ll walk right next to the beautiful Savannah river!

North Augusta has a small town feel with an Ole Town area with quaint shops. It is also a growing city meeting and exceeding the needs of new arrivals to the area. It has several good schools located throughout the area and a brand new baseball stadium. It is now home to the Green-jackets baseball team. It has a close proximity to Augusta, Georgia, Aiken South Carolina and local fruit farmers in the Edgefield-Trenton area.
I enjoy living in North Augusta. It is a small town, but has a lot of shopping and eating options. It is also only 10 minutes from Augusta, GA where there are a ton of other options of things to do, and it is about 15-20 minutes from Aiken, SC. The only thing that has been disappointing me, lately, is that it seems North Augusta is now in competition with Augusta. I enjoyed it being relatively small but it's expanding so much now and there is added traffic because of it.
