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.

What do you like about Augusta?
It is warm and sunny in the winter. Three of the four seasons are really nice. Close to Charleston, SC

What do you dislike about Augusta?
Augustans like to talk about 'southern hospitality'-- and they ARE hospitable-- to other Augusta natives. The people who were born there, maybe got away to college in another small town in Georgia, then came right back and married their high school sweetheart, made babies and the cycle continued. They truly think that Augusta is the center of the universe and have never lived anywhere else. Their perceptions are very distorted. If you are right-wing conservative, slightly or overtly racist and take the Bible LITERALLY, you will LOVE it there.

What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in?
We lived in Evans. Some of the developments are immaculate-- pristinely kept. Nice to look at.

How expensive is it?
Cheap. Housing is as cheap as anywhere in the States, I think.

Is it safe?
Certainly in the suburbs. On the Hill it is a bit less so.

How is the weather?
nice three seasons a year. Summer is horribly hot

Additional thoughts?
I have lived, literally all over the east coast of the States and in two countries in Europe. I had a harder time assimilating to Augusta than I have anywhere else, including countries where I didn't speak the language. It is very disorienting to be living in the States and still feel so much like a foreigner. After three years living there, we still never felt welcome or at home.
