The nearby waterfalls, hiking trails and the annual Oktoberfest celebration further enhance the street’s charm, making it a must-visit destination for those seeking a unique experience.

In Augusta, known for its connection to the prestigious Masters golf tournament, Broad Street showcases the city’s classic Southern charm. It’s historical buildings are occupied by local shops and restaurants, while the tree-lined median adds a touch of greenery to parking spots. The iconic James Brown statue and nearby Riverwalk contribute to the street’s appeal, making it a beloved spot for both locals and visitors alike.

These rankings are the result of a poll conducted by photo book brand Mixbook, which surveyed 3,000 people to create its “America’s 100 Most Charming Main Streets” list.

The inclusion of these three streets in the top 100 is a testament to the Peach State’s unique charm, history, culture and natural beauty, making it a standout destination in the United States.
