Columbia, SC; Athens, GA; Savannah, GA; the Northeast Georgia mountains. If
you are feeling a little ambitious, one could even consider day-tripping to the
beaches at Hilton Head, SC.

Active arts and cultural community

Augusta, Georgia’s cultural
foundation has been sculpted by
the many different perspectives of
its residents and the annual Masters
gold tournament held in April of
each year at the Augusta National.
Augusta’s most notable cultural
influencers are the world famous
musicians that originated from the
Garden City, including James
Brown, Jessye Norman, and Wycliffe
Gordon. In addition to these pop icons, Augusta is home to many large events
and festivals, theatre and dance organizations, and visual arts communities.
Among the most famous annual event in the Masters golf tournament
bringing in over 250,000 visitors each year. Other annual cultural events
include the Arts in the Heart Festival of Augusta, Mayfest, and the arts festival
Westobou. Other points of interest include the Miller Theatre, the Imperial
Theatre, Artists’ Row, the James Brown Arena, the Ezekiel Harris House, the
Sacred Heart Cultural Center and the Greater Augusta Arts Council which
seeks to foster a collaboration between the arts and cultural organizations in
the Greater Augusta area.

Great place to raise a family

The Greater Augusta area is known for its beautiful parks such as Evans Towne
Centre that includes a playground, fountain, splash pad, picnic tables and
bicycle rentals and the Riverwalk, which is a great place to bring your kids to
play in the fountain at the 8th Street entrance during the summer. On Saturday
mornings, you can enjoy a stroll at the Augusta Market in the spring, summer,
and fall.

Make great money renting house out for the Masters

The Masters tournament is not only one of the most coveted and premier golf
events in the world, it also means big bucks for the local economy and area
homeowners. The average four-bedroom, three-bath home rents for $8,500 for
the week, but home rentals for the tournament can range anywhere from
$2,500 to $30,000. Homeowners spend this money earn from these lucrative
deals on anything from home improvements to vacation to college tuition for
their children.

Great selection of local restaurants

Get a good dose of Southern soul food at the many homestyle restaurants
around town. Visit The Partridge Inn for contemporary Southern cuisine and
live entertainment on Friday night. Head to Frog Hollow for an upscale, farmto-table Southern dining experience. Rae’s Coastal Café serves up Caribbean
favorites a bit off-the-beaten path, while French Market Grille offers irresistible
Cajun cuisine. For Southern-style barbecue, skip the chains and head straight
to mom-and-pop places like Sconyers and Ray’s Smokehouse. Cross the river
into South Carolina to dine at the low-key BBQ Barn, and you won’t regret the
drive, but calling ahead is strongly advised.

Rich in history

Augusta has a rich history dating as far back as the early 1700s. The settlement
was established in 1736 by British General James Oglethorpe, and named in
honor of the bride of Frederick Louis, Prince of Wales. Built on the flat slopes of
the Savannah River, in the area now known as Summerville, Augusta was also
home to many neighboring tribes of Creek and Cherokee Indians. A pivotal site
during the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, Augusta also boasts the only structure
ever built by the Confederate States of America, the site of the old Confederate
Powderworks. With the construction of the Augusta Canal in 1847, Augusta
became the second largest inland cotton market in the world during the
cotton boom. Augusta has nine neighborhoods on the National Register of
Historic Places, and several historic monuments and cemeteries.

Southern hospitality

Despite its status as the 2nd
largest city in Georgia, the
Metro-Augusta area is
known for its small town
feel. Augusta is home to
some of the finest hotels in
the state, including the
beautiful Partridge Inn,
known as the “Grand Hotel
of the Classic South.” The
Partridge Inn has undergone
an extensive yet careful restoration; allowing guests to not only experience the
original 1836 house which remains encompassed within the building, but to
also enjoy the comforts and conveniences of a contemporary luxury hotel.
Located in beautiful historic Summerville, the Partridge Inn is the perfect
weekend getaway that mixes southern charm with modern elegance that is
minutes away from the vibrant downtown community and medical district,
and is nestled away in one of the most attractive residential areas of Augusta.
