Activities

Augusta is best for retirees looking for a quieter lifestyle, and most activities are going to be a bit more typical of small town life. There are a variety of nature parks and small museums, as well as small shops and restaurants. Of course, the annual Masters golf tournament is an Augusta highlight for residents and visitors alike. Those looking for a more robust activity scene can make a day trip to Atlanta, approximately a two hour drive away.
