Aiken / Edgefield / Augusta, GA Region

This is horse and rider heaven, a land of mild winters, fresh pine-scented autumns, and unsurpassed spring gardens. Famed as a winter resort for some of America's wealthiest families, it was not uncommon for socialites with names such as Goodyear, Whitney, Astor and Vanderbilt to have homes in the town of Aiken. The Winter Colony Historic Districts — 90-room "cottages," unpaved roads with equestrian stoplights, beautiful gardens and a restored late 19th-century inn — recall the town's golden era as a resort for society.
