Still doesn't change anything, Augusta is still behind its peers despite all of the enthusiasm.

Why do the three amigos from Greenville. Always have to come into the Augusta forum. And talk us to death about their city. Or tell us how much better their city is. Who cares because I surely don't G-man, lil musket, and motoenterprises. Im starting to think all you guys are the same person. Columbia is alot closer to Augusta than Greenville. But I don't see posters from Savannah or Columbia. Like i hear from you the three amigos.

I'm here because Greenville was dragged in before I got here and I have family in Augusta so I'm familiar with it. Oh, and someone came to the Greenville forum so I invited myself over. Love you guys enthusiasm! You should be happy, were boosting your forum numbers.

My wife and I decided to head up to Greenville on Saturday...We had heard some good things about downtown...

My thoughts -

Downtown Greenville...Augusta could only hope to be that nice. Numerous restraurant selections - French to Japanese, Atlant Bread to Trio's, Several Brew Pubs...Great selection. Not a lot of shopping...but it did have a Mast Department Store (quite a hoot), Loose Lucie's, and some nice shops down by Augusta Street.

The Arts area along with Waterfall park...Very pretty. Some pretty impressive new buildings blending with some old ones. And the Downtown baseball stadium seemed very nice. and seemed to be sparking a revival in the blocks leading to the stadium...

Haywood Mall - Has some stores that Augusta Mall does not have (J Crew for my wife). Other than that, I would give the plus to Augusta Mall. And I think that North Lake and Southpark in Charlotte are MUCH nicer than either one...

Overall a nice day trip...More to see

Did you folks get to make over to Woodruff Rd? Very nice shopping over there. Also there are areas like Cherrydale that are pretty nice. Its pretty spread out. Which way did you come into Greenville?

I remember a cpl years back a group of Augusta leaders travelled up to Greenville to meet with their leaders to get some ideas on how to replicate Greenville's successful downtown renewal in Augusta. One of the recommendations was to reconfigure Broad Street (actually narrow it to one lane each side.. inorder to add more parking and increase space for outdoor cafes).. also The arena, performing arts center,and baseball park all being centered in downtown Greenville was a big boost they said. Hopefully Augusta leaders will take their suggestions to heart, because would love to see downtown Augusta with the kind of vibrancy of downtown Greenville.. I think it is very doable here in Augusta. We just need the will to do it.
