Located just outside of Augusta and a little over an hour’s drive from Atlanta and Athens, Thomson, Ga is quintessentially Southern in all aspects. Thomson, Ga welcomes guests from near and far the first Saturday of November for the Belle Meade Hunt, a traditional fox hunt punctuated with just enough pomp and circumstance to make participants feel a part of something truly special. Tour a lavender farm at White Hills Herb Farm, an 1890s restored farmhouse. Shop for hidden treasure at Aunt Tique’s and Uncle Junks or call out the winning bid at Sunset Auctions. The area's year-round mild climate makes it an ideal locale for outdoor activities from boating and fishing to hiking and golfing. Festivals, such as the annual Blind Willie McTell Blues Festival, and special events provide endless opportunity for down-home revelry while historic points of interest such as the Wrightsboro Cemetery, where several veterans of the Revolutionary War are buried, root visitors firmly in the importance of the area. Local boutiques offer one-of-a-kind finds with a Southern twist while area restaurants satisfy the pickiest of palates. This is a slice of Southern heaven. This is Thomson, GA
