Located on the southern bank of the Savannah River, along the Georgia and South Carolina border, Augusta is Georgia’s second-largest city. It was founded in 1736, making it the state’s second-oldest city after Savannah. The city is often referred to as the South’s “Garden City” due to its many public parks and recreational areas. Augusta’s main claim to fame is the Augusta National Golf Course, where the prestigious Masters golf tournament is held every spring.
