"It's the perfect base for hiking, biking, golfing, horseback riding and fishing," she says. "After a big day in the big outdoors, come back to civilization, great restaurants, wine bars and craft breweries." Originally founded in 1747, Staunton has a rich heritage, too. According to Wagner, the Frontier Culture Museum displays a series of authentic historic farms, each moved from their country of origin and reconstructed at the museum site. It's a living-history museum, so visitors interact with costumed interpreters while viewing a blacksmith's forge, period crop-raising methods and more. In the downtown, you will also experience something you can only otherwise see in London: an authentic recreation of Shakespeare's playhouse. Since 1988, The American Shakespeare Center "has worked to create an atmosphere that closely recreates the theatrical experience of Shakespeare's time," says Funkhouser. Staunton also has two city parks that are loved by locals. Among the two parks, facilities include a public golf course, football and baseball stadiums, a public swimming pool, a bandstand, a dog park, a disc golf course, a soccer complex, and fitness, mountain biking trails and more. When in doubt, simply walking through downtown and enjoying the city's historic districts and beautiful, varied architecture can make for a lovely afternoon or evening, especially when paired with a musical event, a dinner at a new restaurant or a night of theater. "I personally enjoy golfing, going to the Augusta Health Fitness Center, which is truly outstanding, or taking a nice walk after dining with my wife," says Johnson. It is a similar sentiment to how he feels about his time at Augusta Health, where he enjoys establishing long-term relationships with his patients and working alongside excellent colleagues. "Augusta Health focuses on health care for the community, with a focus on quality of care," he says. Equally as important, they are "passionate about training tomorrow's health care providers." Win!
