Historic Walking Area Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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.
  • If you have ever been to other riverfront cities you can see the potential here in Augusta. Not sure what it will take to get it to five stars. But they are not there yet. Great place to walk and spend time with family and friends.
  • Fun walking around Augusta... Enjoying the weather and music from locals.
  • Great place to just relax, and take in the day. Plus not to far from some great food. Very clear.
