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
  • Good place to walk or ride bikes. Wonderful views and a fantastic farmers market.
  • Beautiful views. Many sitting areas along the walking path. Evening lighting along path needs work.
