Known worldwide for its golf, Augusta has plenty of things to do year-round. Cheer for the hometown team at an Augusta GreenJackets baseball game or Soul City Sirens roller derby bout. Enjoy the Southern weather with a kayak or canoe trip down the Augusta Canal, or watch the water fly as the world's richest drag boat race speeds down the Savannah River in July.
Shop in locally owned boutiques and stores along Broad Street, in the historic Summerville neighborhood and in Surrey Center. Eat at Augusta's best locally owned restaurants and enjoy classic Southern fare, tapas with an international twist, gourmet burgers, farm-to-table dishes and authentic English & Irish pub food.
Make your first stop in Augusta at the Visitor Center for information on attractions, recreation, hotels, shopping and dining. While you're at the Visitor Center, make your reservation for the Saturday Historic Trolley Tour of Augusta, and pick up souvenir praline pecans, sunglasses, hoodies, t-shirts and more.
