Mild temperatures year-round means exciting outdoor adventures year-round in Augusta's River Region. Water or land, mountain biking or water skiing, we’ve got something for every adventurer.

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.
