Augusta is a fairly decent place to live. I moved here for college and currently live in university housing so the part of town I'm on is not the best but I make do with my surroundings. Augusta has a lot to offer as far as food and diversity, especially in the downtown area. I enjoy exploring new places and I seem to learn something new about Augusta everyday!

The area I live in includes Augusta and its suburbs. There are always community events and concerts in the park and theater productions with the local organizations. Numerous restaurants and hometown businesses give the area a lively feel compared to less active places in America. I could not have chosen a better place to live. In the future, the suburb area will expand to include more homes and places for community events. Downtown is also currently beign refurbished while activists support the local history. There's always something to do here.

My overall experience in my neighborhood has been a pleasure place to live. I live in South Augusta near Fort Gordon Military Base. This area is quite and has less crime than East Augusta. In fact, most people who reside here are working adults, military retirees, and civilians. If I had to do it all over again, I would probably choose the same area because I enjoyed raising my children here.

Currently, the population, housing, and food industry have continued to growth in this area, but lack shopping malls and clothing industries.
