Spring is here and Aiken is a rainbow of colors with blooming flowers and trees. Masters Week at the Augusta National is upon us next week and with Aiken only a short hop from Augusta, the town is buzzing with visitors from all over the country in town to see the golf. With a good assortment of charming hotels and inns here in Aiken, the town is nearly, if not completely, sold out. Aiken's downtown restaurants have a vibe that's fun to be around and everyone is in a festive mood. It will be a busy week, the weather is forecast to be postcard perfect and we're all looking forward to some great golf in anticipation of who last year's Masters' winner, Angel Cabrera, will pass along the iconic green jacket to for 2010!
