Aiken is a charming, yet sophisticated, friendly small town. There are many excellent restaurants and a unique downtown shopping experience. Warm sunny days and cool nights during the winter will remind you why Aiken started as the Winter Colony to escape the harsh winters of the North. Being close to the Augusta National Golf Club (home of The Masters), there are several fine golf courses in and around Aiken.
Aiken also has other equestrian sports for you to enjoy during the winter, including fox hunting, polo, three-day eventing, dressage and carriage driving.
