Local Reviews

Aside from too many cars it is relatively quiet. There is a fair amount of wooded land that remains undeveloped.

It's a Historic mill neighborhood, formerly working class. There aren't really any restaurants in this neighborhood. I like going to the park

There is a good variety when it comes to restaurants. There are many locally owned shops. It is nice to be in a suburban setting within a city.

I like going to the nearby park to walk our dog. I also really like that the bars are close by. But the most of all is the gas station and the grocery store are in walking distance from where I live.

One of the things I like most about living here is that my rent is super cheap, since the family has had the same landlord for over 30 years. My favorite thing about my neighborhood is the fact that it sits up high and at an angle, so it doesn't flood in the spring or winter. There are a lot of walking trails near my house. A short drive brings us to so many different types of restaurants and places to shop.

I love to go the park, store, mall, and it many other places to go like it seriously so fun to live in my neighborhood

About

Augusta, ME

Overview of Augusta

Most people will instantly recognize Augusta as Maine's capital city, but there is plenty more to explore in this New England hub than meets the eye. With the city's newly developed waterfront, excellent school system, and beautiful riverside location, it is clear why so many families are finding their way into Augusta apartments for rent.

Since Augusta is also located to many lakes, close to the Atlantic coastline, and runs along Interstate 295, people here have easy access to outdoor recreation and plenty of shops, restaurants, arts, and culture for residents to enjoy. Although Augusta may be the capital city, it definitely has a small-town feel to it. According to the 2010 U.S. Census Bureau, the city is home to around 19,100 residents.

Living in Augusta, ME

The origins of Augusta are as old as the country itself - dating back to 1607 when the English settlers headed up the Kennebec River to explore trade routes in the newly-discovered colony. There were French and English influences in Augusta during the 17th and 18th centuries, and the area had many faces over the years. Growing from a settlement, trading port, and fort, Augusta wasn't charted as a city until 1849.

One of the biggest reasons why so many people like living in Augusta is because you can live here without putting a dent in your wallet. Although it feels and looks like an aristocratic New England town, the cost of living index here is more than 7 points below the national average, according to City-Data.

Augusta Attractions and Special Events

One of the biggest community gatherings in the area is the Whatever Family Festival. Part of the Augusta area since 1978, this event commemorates the cleanup of the river and still celebrates environmental endeavors. Almost of the activities are available to Augusta residents free-of-charge, including outdoor musical entertainment and Fourth of July fun.
