ABOUT AUGUSTA

With its deep traditions and rich history, the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA), including Augusta, North Augusta, Aiken, and Columbia County is a wonderful place to call home. Our metropolitan area includes a population of over 600,000 people. The CSRA is known for tradition, golf, and gardens – and also for arts, culture, and outdoors activities.  We are located within 2.5 hours of many beaches, mountains, metro Atlanta, Savannah, Charleston, and Charlotte, NC.

 

 

For golf enthusiasts, you can’t get better than Augusta! The Augusta National founded the world-famous Masters golf tournament in 1934. Every April, Augusta hosts patrons from around the world for this dream tournament. For those wanting to play an Augusta course for leisure, you will find beautiful courses such as the River Golf Club, Forest Hills Golf Club, Augusta Country Club, and Champion’s Retreat Golf Club.

 

The Savannah River area is not only picturesque, but it also provides scenic outdoor experiences, too. You will frequently see kayaks and boats floating up and down the river and enjoying the Augusta Canal as well as 71,000 acres (about the area of Athens, Georgia) Lake Thurmond.  Downtown Augusta includes local restaurants, shops, and museums as well as a network of pedestrian / bike paths connecting the entire area.  These include the Augusta Canal Trail and the Riverwalk. On the opposite side of the river, you’ll find the North Augusta Greeneway, which provides miles of smooth bike and running paths. The City of Aiken is irreplaceable with its lovely and charming downtown, world-class equestrian facilities, and beautiful natural recreation areas.

 

 

History buffs should note that Augusta was the second town of the 13th British colony. Founded in 1736 by British General James Oglethorpe, Augusta was named in honor of the bride of Frederick Louis, Prince of Wales. Augusta was a pivotal place during both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. It is nicknamed the Garden City because of the city’s many large, private gardens.

 

The CSRA has received national coverage in reviews and publications such as Forbes, Southern Living, Thrillist, Food & Wine, Money, and many more. Aiken consistently ranks in the top places to retire. In May 2022, Augusta was rated the top metro area in Georgia for people to live and retire by Yahoo Money. And in 2020, Evans (Columbia County) was ranked #1 Best Place to Live in America by Money Magazine.
