Riverwalk, Augusta

#1 of 17 in Things to do in Augusta
Along the Savannah River, the brick-lined Riverwalk brings the old charm of the south to life. You'll step into a subtropical oasis as brick paths draw you past sculpted gardens with fountains and carefully placed benches for taking in the view. Standing atop a coastal ridge, the two-level walkway offers has a children's playground and informative plaques. Part of the river walk includes an outdoor amphitheater, as well as two large downtown water features. Locals often have a picnic at one of the tables provided or choose a picturesque spot for a photo session. Before you visit Augusta, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

    Good views. Lots of places to sit close to the river. There are some interesting historical markers. There is a museum right off the riverwalk. The only negative thing was the swarms of gnats so make sure to bring insect repellent.

    Great place for a stroll during the day. Multiple entrances, so parking isn't a problem. DO NOT GO AFTER DARK.

    Very nice scenes from the riverwalk. A few restaurant areas nearby. Definitely worth the trip if you are in town. CUontheroad

    Beautiful views. Many sitting areas along the walking path. Evening lighting along path needs work.
