About Augusta Planet

Augusta Planet Logo

Hey and thanks for coming to my site! In case we haven’t met yet, I’m LeRoy and I’ve lived in the Augusta area since 2000. This site is all about life in the states of Georgia and South Carolina.

The site really started to highlight a lot of the local things I love about Augusta, like dining and recreation which have really grown in the past 10 years.

But I also realized that since the Augusta metro area is two states and so centrally located, it made sense to highlight some of the other places worth visiting throughout South Carolina and Georgia.

LeRoy H.

Hello! I’m LeRoy, a native of Augusta, GA and have called this place home since 2000! Growing up, I moved around every few years because my family was military. So it’s nice to be a “local” and have a home base.

Growing up, I heard a lot of people refer to our hometown as “Dis-Gusta.” Truthfully, Augusta’s got problems like any place on the planet. But it also has a lot of great things to offer if you’re willing to take the time to explore.

I’m a graduate of the University of Georgia, love hobby board games, and continually find myself exploring the city of Augusta and the bordering states in the region – South Carolina, Florida, Alabama, North Carolina, and Tennessee.

Hailey C.

Hi! I’m Hailey, a Columbia native (born and raised!), University of South Carolina Grad, and freelance marketing strategist and copywriter. I love to call South Carolina home.

I’m passionate about sharing all of the ways you can live like a tourist in South Carolina, whether you’re a local yourself or a first-time visitor. I’ve seen a ton of growth in our state’s entertainment and arts scene, dining scene, and more over my years living here and I’m here to be our state’s biggest cheerleader.

Along with all of the great information you’ll find about Augusta and Georgia on this site, I share the best things to see and do in South Carolina.
