Aiken

Recommended Posts

All photography were taken along Richland Ave. This is also known as US Highways 1 & 78 to outsiders.

Aiken has to be my favorite small town in SC, especially its downtown. Whoever planned the streets in downtown and surrounding area is genius!

After this photo becomes a 5 lane boulevard heading near USC-Aiken and towards North Augusta.

Nice shots of Richland Ave. The last time I was home (Christmas), I was delighted to see that they have finally peeled off the crappy 80's stucco from the Security Federal Bank (the 5th pic), and are restoring the facade to brick again.

Not meaning to hijack your thread, but I've been meaning to post an Aiken photo thread for quite a while now... Here's a few shots from a thread I meant to make about a year ago... These were mostly taken in November and December of 2004, so it's not the busiest or the prettiest time of year, but there are always at least a few people out and about...

Several from Laurens St.

Nah, your not at all! The photos you uploaded are much better than mine since i was just passing through the town on a mission to drive the entire US Highway 1 route from start to finish in South Carolina. I ought to go visit Aiken again sometime soon but this time walk around the downtown area since all of my photos were me just driving by.

Great photos guys! I used to travel to Aiken on a regular basis back when my dad was in the Army Reserve; it's been a while since I've been.

Jerseyman4, you're a real road junkie, you know that? ;)

I've only been through Aiken once (only through, never to), and I was sick and hung over from Paine College's homecoming so I don't remember much.:) But Aiken looks like a gem of a town. And from what I understand, it's more progressive than people would normally give a town of its size and location credit for.
