About The Area
Augusta Road doesn't really need an introduction because it's one of the hottest spots in Downtown Greenville, but for those who don't know much about the area, we're here to give you all the details! One fun fact is it's actually called Augusta Street, but somewhere along the way it became Augusta Road. The area actually started off as a trading trail back when the area was inhabited by the Cherokee Indians. In the 1830s, Augusta Road got its name because it was the road that took you from Downtown Greenville to Augusta, Georgia. Then in 1853 trains started to show up and the area started to grow.
Augusta Road is most known for its shopping, dining, and housing. One thing we love is that the area has a great mixture of franchise restaurants and local eateries. Some of our favorite local spots are Brick Street Cafe, Blockhouse, and Tacozzini. Brick Street Cafe truly welcomes you to the area and they not only have amazing food, but everyday at 12PM they have a cake walk around the restaurant to show off the variety of cakes they have that day! It can be hard to find great seafood when you're not on the coast, but Blockhouse is the place to go if you're looking for some fresh oysters and other selections. Lastly, Tacozzini is for all of the pizza and tacos lovers!
Augusta Road being such a hot spot, it's awesome when it comes to shopping! You'll find everything from local boutiques such as Monkees and Tootsies to more well known stores. If you're looking for something fun to do, check out the historic house tours. One of the most popular ones is the Wilkins House which in 2017 was moved by developers to save it from being demolished.
When it comes to housing, Augusta Road is where everyone wants to be! This isn't your traditional area and there aren't a lot of new construction neighborhoods. This is where you'll find the iconic houses of Greenville, usually all styles and ages, but they tend to be on pricier side starting from the $400s and up.
