Augusta Georgia, a Safe Haven for Peace, Tranquility, and a Few Mysteries

In Richmond County Georgia, Augusta is one of the state's best-kept secrets. The city of Augusta is located on the central eastern border between Georgia and South Carolina, which lies in a quaint setting across from the Savannah River. The city houses about 197,000 people who have the fortuitous privilege of calling this region home. Located just a short 150-mile jog to the capital city of Atlanta and standing only 70-miles from Columbia, this charming city attracts tourists from all across the state along with some of the best fishermen and boating enthusiasts in the world.

The subtropical climate grants visitors with the unique privilege of finding comfort at any time of the year. While the winters are often comfortably mild, the summers often remain nice and sunny at a subtle temperature. Though the Atlanta area does get the occasional snowfall, Augusta averages only about one inch of snow per year. If you are looking for a great place to explore on a vacation this year, Augusta offers a unique haven nestled off the beaten path while providing groups with many attractions that are sure to please. Take a bus to explore the ins and outs of the city and bring your friends by the dozens to see what this plentiful region has to offer.

Haunted Pillar

The Haunted Pillar is an unusual attraction right in the middle of this town. It's a legend in this area that just never seemed to die. The locals believe that there is a curse on the pillar and those who touch it will feel the effects on their life. The area around this popular attraction is electrified and many feel creepy just by driving by. Legend has it that the pillar was cursed by a local preacher for not being able to spread the gospel there. He made a declaration that the only thing left standing would be the pillar and the area would be destroyed. Most thought he was crazy until a freak tornado came through and destroyed the area. It left the pillar untouched. The events made a believer out of the locals. Since that time, those who have touched the pillar have said to experience horrible things, even death. If you love supernatural things, the Haunted Pillar is a must-see place.

Haunted Pillar 

This tradition is unique to Augusta, as it highlights the unique history of the city. The pillar stands as a reminder that the city carries with it a complex story that should never be forgotten.
