Cue the Mister Rogers music, because Augusta has been named the number one most neighborly city in America!

A company called Neighbor compiled the list, based on statistics like volunteering and charitable giving. (Nearly 90 percent of tax returns from Augustans included contributions to charity!)

Another fun fact about our neighborly city: we apparently love to carpool; about 11 percent of Augustans carpool to work.
