Meet me and my life! I am a wife, mom, and realtor. I like to enjoy the area and the fun things the Augusta, Evans, Martinez, Grovetown areas have to offer. This is a great place for families and there are a lot of options for recreation, here is a little preview of my life!

 

Cultural | There are many cultural opportunities to take advantage of during your visit to the Augusta Metro area. Whether you are visiting for a weekend or live here, there are many activities and sites to take in during a weekend or on a regular basis.  You can take a nice walk and see some great scenery of the Savannah River at the Augusta Riverwalk. If you are

interested in the arts, don't miss the Gertrude Herbert Institute of ArtAugusta Museum of HistoryImperial TheatreJames Brown ArenaThe Morris Museum of ArtSacred Heart Cultural CenterLucy Craft Laney Museum of Black History, and the Boyhood home of President Woodrow Wilson.

Shopping | Enjoy plenty of shopping that will satisfy your every look and genre, from the individual attention of local boutiques at Surrey Center to national retailers at the Augusta Mall.  Augusta, Grovetown, and Evans all have access to Costco, Sams, and Cabela's.  We are excited that in 2016 Premier Outlets of Georgia @ Augusta will be joining the Village at Riverwatch, right off of I-20 at exit 199 near the Augusta Canal and the Savannah River. Outdoor retailer Gander Mountain is also coming to Columbia County in late 2014. 

Sports | Through Columbia County Parks and Recreation, Richmond County Parks and Recreation, club, school, and YMCA recreational leagues, there are opportunities for all age groups to be active. The Augusta Sports Council is involved with many area sporting events such as marathons, a 70.3 Ironman, disc golf, and co-ed flag football and kickball leagues. The city of Augusta also has Adult Athletic Programs.

Summer Activities | There are a multitude of summer camps in the summer. Many neighborhood have pools that are included in the Homeowner's Associations and many neighborhoods have swim teams that compete with each other. The area splash pads are open and the outdoor pool at the Y is available to Y members. If you are looking for a easy get-a-way, pack a lunch and head to Strom Thurmond Lake for the day to cool off. The lake is only about 25 minutes from Augusta and offers many day use areas with beaches for swimming, grills, picnic tables, and restrooms. Some other activities that occur in the Summer are:
