I'm moving to Augusta, Georgia, for a few years to pursue an awesome professional opportunity. What can you tell me about Augusta?

I suppose this is a bit of an open-ended question, but I'll be in Augusta for the next few years, and I'm not completely sure what to expect. I'm a mid-20s guy without any friends or family out there, although my similarly aged future colleagues seem like they'll be great people. I do worry about the fact that Augusta seems like a bit of a cultural backwater, surrounded by more interesting cities that are close enough for a day trip but too far to actually live in: Atlanta (where I've been for a few years), Savannah, Charleston, Columbia, Charlotte, and so on.
So, what can you tell me about Augusta? Can you assuage my nervousness about moving out there? Or can you just give me practical advice about finding a place to live in the city and such?
