Hunting in the Augusta Area

Outdoor-minded Augustans are blessed with an abundance of public hunting lands that include a quarter of a million acres on both sides of the Savannah River.

Most sites are within an hour’s drive from downtown and require little more than a hunting license and wildlife management area permits available through the Georgia or South Carolina departments of natural resources.

Only in Augusta

Augusta is, in many ways, like any other city in the United States. The things we want, the things we look for, the things that feel familiar to us – they are all available. The Greater Augusta Area is as franchised and chained as any city of its size and stature. Fret not. But also like most cities, there are certain things only available here and only available to those in know. Here’s a short list of some of the Augusta-centric treats available locally. Enjoy.

Arts and Culture

Arts and entertainment abound in our area—the question isn’t “what to do”, but “where to start?” Music & Theater Downtown Augusta has a rich history of entertainment reflected in some magnificent theaters on Broad Street. That’s where you’ll find the Imperial Theatre, showing everything from local stage productions to great regional bluegrass, rock, or soul concerts. […]

The River Brought Us Here – Augusta’s Story

The river brought the first peoples to this place. Located on the fall line where the piedmont meets the ancient shore at the Sand Hills, the Augusta community began in 1736 as a fur trading post and fort named in honor of Princess Augusta, bride of the Prince of Wales. The American Revolution began less than four decades later; in Augusta and other areas of the backcountry it was, for the most part, a civil war fought between Americans– Patriots and Loyalists.

Renting Your House Out for Masters

Buying a home in Augusta means more than it does in almost any other city in the country- a HUGE opportunity for a return on investment- from an unexpected source. Masters rental rates are comparable to beach or mountain vacation rentals. There are many elements that influence the cost of a rental, and depending on these factors, you can imagine making tax free income ranging from the cost to rent a house on Lake Thurmond to the cost of renting a mansion in Malibu!
