Welcome to Augusta!

ashley2016-e7c840e8April in Augusta—the most fabulous time of the year for our fair city! For one week the world is our stage and everyone who is anyone is watching.

As locals, we are so proud that Augusta was chosen by the founders of the Augusta National Golf Club to host the world’s most prestigious golf tournament. As Southerners, we have spent months preparing for our guests to arrive. 

Homeowners and businesses alike have attended to every detail. Fresh coats of paint have been added to a variety of structures, roads have been constructed to allow traffic to pass more easily and landscapes have been created to ensure the flora and fauna put on a spectacular show for all to see. 

We understand most folks are here to attend the tournament on those hallowed grounds that lie just beyond the fence off Washington Road, but we hope you will take a stroll outside the gates and explore the Garden City while you’re here. 

Augusta has a blossoming arts scene, countless fabulous restaurants, miles of beautiful greenways and trails, and world-class museums. Also, we are home to the U.S. Army Cyber Command, nationally-known medical facilities, great schools and universities as well as one of the country’s largest Ironman competitions. Our economy is strong—with numerous manufacturing companies and a vibrant real estate market. 

Admittedly, golf put Augusta on the map, but we are so much more. We hope you’ll take a moment to experience all that Augusta has to offer and to see just why so many of us are proud to call this place home!
