If Augusta already rings a bell in your mind, it's probably because of The Masters golf tournament that takes place here each spring. But there's still plenty to see and do beyond the perfectly-manicured fairways of Georgia's second-most populous city (and also one of its best vacation destinations).
Nestled along the banks of the Savannah River, Augusta is one of the oldest cities in Georgia, dating back to the 1730s. Quickly establishing itself as a major market town, farmer's markets are still common on the streets today.
The warm year-round climate has long made Augusta a draw for travelers looking to escape the chill further north for the mansions of Summerville, many of which are now open to visitors as museum spaces.
Take a stroll down Broad Street, and you'll discover a fine array of architectural styles, independent stores, and places to grab a bite to eat. Meanwhile, the Augusta Downtown Historic District contains many of the city's landmark buildings, a significant proportion of which predate the American Civil War.
The proximity to the Georgia countryside is another appealing feature of Augusta. When it comes to transport, Atlanta and its Conyers suburb are just over three hours away, thanks to a bus network consisting of 25 routes that crisscross the state and the broader southeastern United States.
An idyllic city with quaint moss-covered and time-washed buildings, Charleston offers plenty of scenic sights and culturally significant destinations to explore. The highlights of this amazing city are its cobblestone streets and hauntingly beautiful mansions (some are even rumored to be actually haunted). The best way to enjoy these timeless relics is to take a walking tour around town, with or without a local guide. As you enjoy your walking tour, don’t miss out on the chance to explore The Battery, which features some of the most photogenic spots in the entire city. This quarter used to be the center of all maritime activities in the city, but it is now a famous tourist area. The nearby White Point Garden, which houses interesting Civil War-era relics, is also a great destination.
Charleston is a top foodie destination, being quite famous for its Southern staples. The best places to indulge in these Southern delicacies are Husk and Magnolias. If you crave some seafood, Hyman’s Seafood is a local favorite. Plus, Charleston's nightlife makes it a great destination for bachelorette parties.
The main bus station in the city is located on Rivers Ave. The city’s main airport is the Charleston International Airport, 12 miles northwest of downtown.
