In golfing circles, Augusta in April is a dream vacation. But even non-golfers will marvel at this city's picturesque Riverwalk, vibrant art scene, and tasty Southern delicacies. Augusta hotels range from boutique to chain options, and Travelocity's discounts will leave you with more cash to spend in this charming Georgia city.
Out and About in Augusta
To get the best overview of life in Augusta, don't miss the exhibits at the Augusta Museum of History. Not only will you learn more about how the city has grown, but you'll learn about its most famous denizens—and, of course, about golfing at the Masters. From the museum, take a quick trip over to the Savannah Rapids Visitor Center. Located above the Savannah River and over the Augusta Canal, the center features photographs of the development of Columbia County. Are you eager to explore the city streets? Hotels in Augusta are near the famous Riverwalk. It's perfect for quiet walks along the Savannah River, but it has also become a hub for events like summer jazz concerts and Saturday open-air markets. This downtown hot spot also lands you in front of the Morris Museum of Art, with its inspiring collection built around the artwork and artists of the South.
Eating and Drinking
Whether you end your touring day at the museum or by shopping along the Riverwalk, your downtown wanderings have put you in perfect position to enjoy Augusta's burgeoning culinary scene. After trying traditional southern dishes like fried chicken and catfish, or the legendary pimento-cheese sandwich, you may be booking a flight to Augusta once a month to try more. But even if you just want to sip your sweet tea by the river and nibble on cornbread, the taste of Augusta will leave a definite impression.
