Columbia's nightlife scene is light years ahead of Augusta's.

We will be dead by then...so will our children...and their children...and their children. Maybe 200-300 years...but probably longer.

Too much distance and rural areas for that to happen.

Spartanburg/Greenville has actually come close to it, though.

Augusta, Thompson and Aiken will likely merge within the next 10 years.

What do you mean by merge? I do think Augusta and Columbia will form a CSA in our lifetime.. Aiken County and Lexington County are located side by side.. If you look at the satellite images, the cities of Augusta and Columbia are already pretty well connected..

There won't be massive amounts of continous development from Augusta to Columbia down I-20... There will be noticeable continous development though...

I'll say Edgefield, Aiken, Hephzibah, Waynesboro, Harlem, Blythe, Mcbean, and Thomson will become inner suburbs instead of exurbs...

Which means Mccormick, Lincoln, Jefferson, or Wilkes county should be added to the metro..

There would be a better chance of Aiken and Lexington counties merging, and doing it faster, if the areas that where they bordered weren't the most rural of each county. Lot of nothing along those parts of I-20.

Augusta has it's own expanding to do...mostly towards the west. Columbia has already been doing it, in rapid fashion, mainly to the northeast.

I dont think it will happen either both metros are growing to the northeast and Aiken to the southeast lexington to the northeast as well away from eachother unless some type of major employer locates on interstate 20 along the Aiken/Lexington county line and thats still a long shot.
