Augusta, Georgia

Traveling old school, Broad Street, downtown Augusta.

Augusta, Ga., is one of the most famous datelines in golf, thanks to the Masters each spring, but the city with a population of just under 200,000 people is more than its iconic major championship. "The Garden City" lives up to its name in many ways beyond Magnolia Lane, with blooming brilliance in neighborhoods rich and poor beyond the commercial whirlwind on Washington Road outside the gates of Augusta National. During Masters Week, golf is the focus in this city founded in the 18th century as it embraces and capitalizes on its famous tournament. But, as these scenes from the past few days show, life goes on in other ways too.
