Augusta, Georgia Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Augusta is Georgia's second oldest, and second largest city. Size hasn't destroyed Augusta's knack for southern charm however. In fact, charm seems to be the norm. Storeowners are welcoming, and locals are helpful and friendly. Founded in 1736, it sits on the Savannah River, just across from North Augusta, South Carolina.

Augusta is best known for hosting one of golf's most coveted events- the annual Masters Tournament. But don't be fooled... this is a city full of scores of diverse activities waiting to be appreciated.

Downtown Augusta features tree-lined streets, antebellum homes, and revitalized19th century buildings. All accented by the beautiful Savannah River. Riverwalk Augusta is downtown's crown jewel. A visitor's paradise, Riverwalk offers quaint cafes, bistros, pubs, art galleries, boutiques, and many remarkable antiques. Several superb museums are within walking distance, including Fort Discovery- a museum geared toward children, and the National Science Center. Augusta Common offers a more relaxing stop. This relatively new park and festival space is located near Riverwalk. Nightowls will enjoy downtown's Board Street. Many pubs and coffeehouses here boast live music.

Augusta's abundant waterways offer several outlets for boating, fishing, swimming, and kayaking.

Last but not least, golf lovers will enjoy access to several well-maintained public courses in and around Augusta.

Augusta is easily accessed from Interstate 20. US Highway 1 is the best choice when visiting from North Augusta, South Carolina.
