The reviewers who tried to paint Augusta as a great town are full of crap! The city contains over 90 major street gangs. Most areas are crime infested with poor housing. Not just a few areas but everything below Grovetown should be avoided. This means avoid South Augusta and most of the downtown areas. Here are a few of the bad areas: Barton Chapel Rd, Meadowbrook, Harrisburg, Southside, Old Savannah, Delaney Walker Blvd, Apple Valley, East Boundary, Laney Walker Blvd, and much more. The good areas are primarily Evans, Martinez, Grovetown and sections of Summerville. If you think my assessment is wrong look at the crime maps for yourself for a one week period in Augusta: http://www.augustachronicle.com/special/99999999/richmond-county-crime-map-and-databaseThe statistics don't lie! The overall crime rate in Augusta is 107% higher than the national average. You can add another 27% to the 107% if you live in areas on the Southside! Augusta is safer than 9% of the cities in the United States. This means 91 percent of America is safer than Augusta! Enough said! Have a nice day everyone!
