With a beautiful landscape and a rich history, this southern enclave is one of the hidden gems of the United States, offering visitors plenty to do.
Augusta is perhaps best known for being the annual host of The Masters, one of the most recognizable tournaments in all of golf. Augusta National is among the most iconic courses in the world, and provides views like no other links in the world. From the entrance down the tree-lined Magnolia Lane, to the mystique of Amen Corner, Augusta National is rife with golf history. The sport's greatest stars have walked down the fairways on that final weekend in April, from four-time champion Tiger Woods, to five-time winner Jack Nicklaus.
Augusta isn’t all about golf, however. There are a number of annual events that might attract fans from all over. The Augusta GreenJackets, are a minor league affiliate of the San Francisco Giants. And is the case with all minor league teams, the team offers baseball fans a closer rapport with players and a more interactive experience for the whole family.
Augusta is also home to a diverse musical scene. As home of the Godfather of Soul, the city paid tribute to him by naming its biggest musical venue after him. The James Brown Arena has hosted everything from sporting events to concerts and is a great place to catch a show. Additionally, stopping by a show put on by the Augusta Symphony can be a real treat for the classically inclined, as this talented outfit has been performing four major concert series each year.
Those looking for a more theatrical experience are in luck as well. Augusta is home to the Imperial Theatre, an intimate venue that holds a great deal of historic and artistic appeal. Opened in 1918, this theater has played host to a number of famous shows, and is the former rehearsal spot of James Brown.
After a long day visiting the sites or taking in a play, vacationers may want to take a stroll down the city's beautiful Riverwalk. The scenic park along the city's levee is the perfect way to end a trip.
