Take a Chance on Augusta

When you’re preparing a trip States side you almost automatically tick off the big names. We’re talking, of course, New York, Los Angeles, Boston or Washington. But the absolute beauty of heading to this part of the world is the sheer scale of choice you have. You literally have a trip for every type of holiday and every type of holiday maker.

In this blog, we’ll take a look at what to do and what to see in the city of Augusta in Georgia, a destination that often misses the top spots in travel guides but has unlimited opportunities for fun and relaxation.

Nature at its Best

If you’re looking to sample a little of the natural beauty that Augusta has to offer, then head down to the Savannah River. Here you’ll find the Savannah Rapids Visitor Centre, the perfect place to explore everything the area has to offer. You’ll discover the changing character of the water through the fascinating museum and be able to get on the water with the chance to go kayaking.

To take in more of the charming riverbanks, hire bikes and make a cycle ride out of it packing up a picnic and stopping along the way to take in the views.

Where to Stay

There’s something for every budget in Augusta and whether you prefer to be in the hustle and bustle of city life, or stay somewhere on the edges you’ll find a hotel or guest house that has your name on it. If you’re looking for an extended stay hotel in Augusta then why not check out the Candlewood Suites where you’ll find great rooms, a fitness centre and free wifi, everything you’ll need for a long and comfortable stay.

Cultural Offering

If you’re looking for something that appeals to your cultural side, then head to the Sacred Heart Cultural Center, a former Catholic church that has been painstakingly restored and is open to visitors who are drawn to its stunning stained glass windows, architecture and alters carved in Italy. A must for fans of beautiful buildings.


As you might expect from Georgia’s second oldest city there is a huge variety of food choices on offer and the classic Southern charm that you might expect from this part of the world.

Head into the city for a visit to Frog Hollow Tavern and an eclectic collection of dining options from local grown produce. Stop at the Soul Bar for a drink where you’ll find the city’s best musicians ready to play you onto the dance floor for a great night of music and fun.

Quite simply, whatever you’re looking for in a holiday you’ll find it in Augusta. Charming, fun, vibrant and rich in cultural and natural history there really is a place for everyone here.

It may not feature in the biggest guidebooks but that might just be the reason to make this city a stop on your tour of the States. Take a chance on Augusta, you won’t regret it.
