Augusta oozes Southern charm

Oodles of historic charm, a legacy of golf, and an ideal location on the border of Georgia and South Carolina make Augusta the perfect year-round family destination. Whether you come in spring for the buzz of The Masters Tournament or in summer to kayak on the Savannah River, you’ll fall in love with the friendly Southern ambiance, pleasant climate, and famous peach cobbler topped with homemade ice cream. A range of Augusta vacation rentals put you near the action, with options next door to golf courses, in the heart of the downtown historic district, and steps away from the rippling river.

Walking through history in Augusta

As the 2nd oldest city in the state, Augusta has a number of historic properties to discover. Take a guided tour of the home where president Woodrow Wilson grew up to learn more about his life during the Civil War era. The surrounding downtown district, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is full of old commercial buildings, churches, government offices, and houses dating to the 17th century. The whole family will enjoy hearing about the storied sites during a ride on an old-timey trolley.

Exploring the waterfront in Augusta

The Augusta Canal was the first spot in Georgia to be named a National Heritage Area, and its 170-plus year legacy is highlighted in the Augusta Canal Discovery Center and on guided boat tours of the waterway. On land, you can stroll down the old towpath, where mules once pulled cargo boats. At the Riverwalk, a family-friendly waterfront attraction, you might catch a show at the amphitheater, browse locally made goods at the seasonal Saturday market, or take the kids to play in the splash fountain. Craft your own cultural trail along the Riverwalk by starting on one end at the Augusta Museum of History and walking to the Morris Museum of Art on the other end.

Spring awakening in Augusta

Spring brings a wave of color and excitement to Augusta as the azaleas bloom in pinks and purples and the greens at the Augusta National Golf Club welcome the sport’s top players. This is the perfect time of year to enjoy a family barbecue and many Augusta vacation rentals come equipped with outdoor grills. With warm, sunny summers and mild winters, the pleasant year-round climate has been a draw since Augusta’s early years, when the rich and famous would come here to escape the snowy north.

Enjoying nature in Augusta

With the Savannah River, Augusta Canal, and Lake Olmstead nearby, boating, canoeing, and fishing adventures abound. Running partially along the South Carolina side of the Savannah River, the North Augusta Greeneway offers 7 miles of hiking and biking trails to enjoy the outdoors. Just outside of town at the Phinizy Swamp and Nature Park, you might catch a glimpse of an otter, beaver, blue heron, or alligator. After a day spent exploring the 1,100-acres of wetlands and boardwalks, you’ll be ready for a relaxing evening back at your Augusta vacation rental.
