Still very much a part of the historic South, Augusta is a world of tree-lined streets, majestic antebellum mansions and an old world charm rarely found elsewhere, even in the Deep South.
Augusta's downtown area is a vibrant and exciting cultural center where dozens of tiny shops, galleries and restaurants compliment its many historic attractions.
Beyond all that, of course, it is, after all, the home of the The Masters, and a would-be Mecca for golfers from around the world.Unfortunately, very few visitors ever get to see the Masters live, or even Augusta National; even fewer are privileged to play this most famous of all golf courses for, unlike St. Andrews, Turnberry, Royal Lytham St. Annes, Sawgrass and many of the other great golf courses where major golf championships are played, Augusta National is one of the nation's most exclusive, private clubs where memberships are not bought but handed down from one family generation to the next.
