The Greater Augusta Region is a fast-paced progressive area where manners still matter. A place with all of the amenities of a sophisticated city but still has small-town charm. This region includes three counties and two states with the city of Augusta in its center and the city North Augusta across the river in South Carolina. The city of Aiken is in the center of Thoroughbred Country and is a bustling city of 30,000 people. The cities of Evans, Martinez, Harlem and Grovetown are in Columbia County, one of the fastest-growing counties in the nation.
587,000 people call the Greater Augusta Region home, and more than 1 million people within a 60-mile radius. Photo credit: The Augusta Convention & Visitors Bureau
