Thomson is a small town in Georgia. It doesn't have much to offer. There aren't many places to go. Our biggest attraction is literally Wal-Mart. Augusta Georgia isn't too far from Thomson. It's 30 minutes away.

Thomson is a small town within he state of Georgia. The town has proclaimed a lot of history to include Blind Willie McTell. Throughout the town, there are numerous guitars displayed to contribute and instill the heritage that has been established. Additionally, every year there is a annual festival that honors music.
Thomson has a rich history, but offers little for entertainment. Restaurants are abundant and great, but a movie theater is nearly the only activity available, aside from the local Wal-Mart. The public schools offer decent classes but the extra-curriculars are a total selling point.
