About Augusta

Augusta  epitomizes the Classic South. Founded as a trading post during the British colonial period, the city showcases Antebellum mansions, hallowed historic sites, and quiet, tree-lined avenues perfect for relaxing strolls.

Arts and culture. Shopping and fine cuisine. Dynamic recreation. In no time at all, you’ll understand why Augusta is the best-kept secret along the Savannah River.
