Magnolia Cemetery

Reviewed By alexac528

My grandpa was born in this area and I was looking for his father’s grave. The gentleman in the office was very helpful in getting us within 2 family plots of my ancestors. Since they lived before the civil war, the computer listings did not go that far back. The property is beautiful and oozes of history when reading the tombstones. The Magnolia trees are enormous and were a lovely backdrop on a cool fall day of finding my roots.

A gem in the heart of Augusta touring sacred heart was beyond my imagination. The beauty of the flowers are among some of the best I've ever seen. We did the audio tour with headphones helping me to connect with some of the amazing aspects of this beautiful building. I can see why every girls dream is to get married there it would be almost like a magical wedding. The history behind the whole museum makes it even better!! Staff is also an amazing added bonus

Reviewed By PT1102 - Augusta, United States

We went to the Savannah Rapids visitor Center and then walked the Augusta canal trail. Walked 2 miles south and then back 2 miles. The total distance can be as much as 8 miles on this trail. Lots of wildlife and history as you walk this trail. Good place to get away from the business of life.

The Indian Queen

Reviewed By Gamergirl2014 - Thomson, United States

This place has the best chili dog I've ever had and I'm so glad I tried this place out. When I came here last Friday, it was rarely busy and took a seat where I could see the TV best. The young lady named Anna was very courteous and polite and took my order very quickly and I didn't have to wait long for my food at it. The food was A+ and the service was also A+.

Signer's Monument

Reviewed By jodih792 - Augusta, United States

This obelisk is a monument to Georgia’s signers of The Declaration of Independence. These three men were; George Walton, Lyman Hall & Button Gwinnett. The first two of them are buried right here underneath this monument. This is located in downtown Augusta right in front of the Municipal Building. Be careful getting to it in the middle of the road!
