GBI Investigating Deadly Shooting in Thomson: The Georgia Bureau of Investigation was called to the scene of a deadly shooting Saturday night in Thomson. McDuffie County authorities got a 911 call…

Well, would you look at this?  3 cities in South Carolina have made Southern Living Magazines’ list of “Best Small Towns“!  One of them is very personal and close to home!

Beaufort came in at number 1, Travelers Rest in Greenville County came in at number 12 and our very own City Of Aiken came in at number 10 of the best small towns.  Go, Aiken!  I live in Aiken County and I spend a lot of time in downtown Aiken.  Yes, Aiken is known as an equestrian town but Aiken has so much more to offer like the Willcox’s, The Center For The Arts, and Hopelands Gardens.

From shopping, eating, playing, and hanging out with friends you will not find a better place to do any of those! We definitely think Aiken is one of the best small towns.

If you’ve not taken the time to head over to Aiken and spend time there, Please do so soon.  You will be happy you did.  To show what Aiken has to offer, I wanted to share some of my favorite pictures I’ve taken over the years in Aiken!
