Riverwalk

Augusta, GA, is known for its quintessential Southern charm, elegant antebellum mansions and numerous gardens. Visiting Augusta means taking a relaxing stroll through elegant tree-lined avenues, visiting great museums and galleries, and enjoying famous Southern food. The city is also known as a center of biotechnology, medicine and cyber security. Here are the best things to do in Augusta, Georgia.

Riverwalk

The cool breeze from the mighty Savannah River makes Riverwalk one of the favorite places for Augusta residents and tourists to visit on a hot day, sit on a bench, and watch the river, have a picnic, or a stroll under the old shady trees. The Riverwalk stretches between 6th & 10th Streets in Downtown Augusta, and it consists of two levels accessible from different downtown locations.

The Riverwalk includes a number of popular venues such as at the 8th Street Bulkhead that hosts the weekly Saturday Market on the river and one of Augusta’s most popular summer events – the Candlelight Jazz Series. The brick-paved 10th Street Plaza leads through the levee into the Heroes Overlook. The 9th Street Plaza leads to the Jessye Norman Amphitheater, which overlooks a multi-use covered stage that bends to the Savannah River.

The Japanese Gardens make up a charming little park on the RiverWalk’s lower level, popular for a quiet destination for wedding photos. There is always something going on at the Riverwalk, from 4th of July fireworks to the St. Patrick’s Day festivities and much more.

The Augusta Museum of History is the oldest historical museum in Augusta. Founded in 1937, it is dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of the city and regional history. The museum owns the largest and most important historical collection in the Central Savannah River Area and is an invaluable historical resource and research center for historians, students, media, and others.
