Augusta is Georgia's second largest and oldest city. Located along the banks of the Savannah River, the city is centrally located in the “Peach State,” at just two hours from Atlanta and under three hours from both beaches and mountains. Augusta has all the charm of a classic Southern city and offers access to outdoor recreation unlike anywhere else.
Because of its sprawling landscape, the best way to get around Augusta is by car. Major roads such as I-520, which circles the city, make it easy to drive around the city. Augusta Public Transit also provides bus service in town and throughout Richmond County. The bus provides access to Augusta’s historic downtown, which is also easily navigable by foot.
