What do you like about Augusta?
Nothing really. My family is here thats it. i could say cheap gas but Bush took care of that.
What do you dislike about Augusta?
Well just about everything. I'm 19, and there is nothing for people 18-20 years old. NOTHING. If your between those ages, your screwed. Either go to Columbia or Atlanta every weekend. Plus the area is just so far right winged, its not funny. This town is ultra conservative, so if you have a diffrent opinion other then the Republican party, you can pretty much just turn around and walk away, for they will take you out back and throw bibles at you. Everything here is about race or color. And rebel flags wave like the state flag. Plus, the weather is horrid. Summers are just too humid and steamy. Youll learn to live with it, but still hate summers. The only good thing about summers is that Myrtle Beach is 3 hours away. The government here is also in debt like crazy, the school system in Richmond county is the worst in Georgia which intern is the worst in the USA as Georgia is dead last. People here are just plain dumb. The crime isnt bad, but it isnt good either. This place is just too much of a southern baptist hick town for me.
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? I like downtown alot. I really like the houses is Olde Town, downtown, but crime is really high down there so I wouldnt look to live there. I like to hang out in Evans, as that is the richer part of town.
How expensive is it? It's pretty cheap. There isn't really any reason for anyone who makes over $500k a year to live here, as we have nothing that is upscale (restraunts, designer stores, tourist attractions...etc)
Is it safe? Some what safer then Atlanta. My hometown was alittle bigger then this city and they havn't had a murder in 3 yrs. This is not the case with Augusta (the city is Ann Arbor, MI).
How is the weather? Pretty much hot throughout most of the year. It can vary. It was like 71 degrees on x-mas day a couple years ago. But its brisk from november to maybe march. I've known it to get hot as hell in March.
Additional thoughts? Its a pretty crappy city. If your looking to go school here or something, look towards Athens, or Clemson or even Ann Arbor, because going to Augusta State or another college around here would be one sad college experiance. Its an ok town to retire in. Lots and lots of golf. But if you have teenagers, look elsware. Because I know I am looking to get far far away from this hick town. Its embarrassing to live in Augusta most of the times. Sorry, but this is the areas fault as they dont try to attract new people to the area at all. If you have to live here , tho, I reccoment the Evans area. Best schools in the area and the nicest part of town by far.

What do you like about Augusta?

Nothing much to like about it other than the fact that it had a good hospital and gave my family a home. Does have some decent people in it but overall the city is pretty much what everyone in this entire rating has been saying. Full of right wing conservatives that hate anyone not like them and definitely not the kind of city you would want to raise open minded kids in.

What do you dislike about Augusta?

Where do we even begin. Well everyone's review has been spot on as to what is wrong with the city, including the ultra conservatism. Did I not mention? If you weren't raised there, you are pretty much an outcast. Not much to do for the younger kids. Happy to have got out of there.

Terrible high school system.

What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in?

Augusta Mall, that is about it.

How expensive is it?

Very cheap.

Is it safe?

Richmond County no.
Columbia County yes.

How is the weather?

Terrible summers.

Additional thoughts?

I have no choice but to agree with the above user. Never felt accepted in the city and people were closed off to anyone that wasn't like them. One of the worst places to grow up in from my view. High school system, unless your kid is lucky enough to get into the magnet schools (which only Davidson is a good one) or a private schools, are terrible. The Columbia county schools have been overcrowded due to everyone wanting to live there. Was very happy to leave the place.
