Welcome to Augusta,
2018 AAU Track & Field Region 8 Championship
Augusta is excited to welcome you! Don't just spend your days on the course and your nights in the hotel room... our city and Augusta's River Region are bustling with fun things to do and amazing places to eat and drink. So get out and explore!
Since we’re right on the Savannah River, we’ve got plenty of activities for those who love water. Try Betty's Branch for kayaking, canoeing and SUPing. With water comes greenery, like the Augusta Canal Heritage Area or Phinizy Swamp, which are also both great places for hiking or biking.
Museums & Galleries
If you love museums, galleries and art, some folks might think you’re artsy. Others might think you’re a hippie. And maybe you are. But in Augusta, you’re in good company. From large museums to tiny galleries, we have something for every creative soul.
Augusta is the second oldest city in Georgia. So, we’ve got more museums than your feet can handle walking through. Start at the Augusta Museum of History to really get to know the city.
