Azaleas are blooming, signaling the most anticipated week of the year in Augusta, GA. The Augusta National will soon open the gates to eager locals and out-of-towners, golf enthusiasts, and partygoers. It is the week to see and be seen for many. Whether you have been working non-stop to ready your home for guests and carefully planning your escape out of town, or lining up your social calendar around a visit or two to the course, there is a certain electricity in the air felt by all Augustans as we look to the first week in April. You may not know a thing about golf, but it's almost impossible not to take pride in our city as we observe the excitement upon the faces of those first-timers and tournament week veterans alike. Maybe you spend an extra hour or two sprucing up your front lawn this month, or perhaps you find yourself visiting a local attraction ahead of the crowds. Be sure to slow down and reacquaint yourself with this charming city so that you might be a better host or hostess to those seeing it for the first time. Who knows maybe you will discover something new for yourself.
