Located just outside of Augusta and a little over an hour's drive from Atlanta and Athens, Thomson-McDuffie is quintessentially Southern in all aspects. Thomson-McDuffie welcomes guests from near and far on the first Saturday of November for the Belle Meade Hunt, a traditional fox hunt punctuated with pomp and circumstance. Tour 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. 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 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-McDuffie.
