Make the most of cool days and chilly nights with these 10 quintessential fall things to do in Augusta's River Region.

Drink hot coffee.

A cool fall morning spent shopping at Surrey Center in search of seasonal goodies isn't complete without a Spiced Latte from Buona Caffe in hand.

Go for a nature walk.

There's nothing better than strolling along the Augusta Canal at Savannah Rapids Park in late October and taking in all of the beautiful fall foliage.

Visit the fair.

Three county fairs in the River Region - Columbia County Fair, Georgia-Carolina State Fair, and Western Carolina State Fair - offer all the fun rides and funnel cakes you need this fall.

Take a haunted trolley tour.

As Georgia's second oldest city, Augusta has some eerie tales to tell. Hear stories of grave robbing, haunted hotels, and more during Southstar's Ghost Trolley Tours.

Find your way through a corn maze.

Wander through the twists, turns, and dead ends of The Maize at Steed's Dairy. Entry includes extra family fun like a petting zoo, hayrides, pumpkin patch, rubber duckie race, and more.

Carve a Forever Pumpkin.

Carve and paint a hand-thrown ceramic pumpkin to show off every fall at Tire City Potters.

Go on a cemetery tour.

Learn about some of Augusta's most interesting residents during Historic Augusta's annual Walk With the Spirits cemetery tours.

Make a fall scented candle.

Maybe you're an anything-pumpkin queen. Or maybe you prefer the scent of fire-roasted pine cones. Either way, you get to decide what the perfect fall scent for your space is when you create your own candle at Augusta Candle Company.

Read a good book.

Grab a feel-good fall read or a classic horror novel and spend a few hours reading outside with a mug of hot cider. Not sure what you want to read? Check with the folks over at The Book Tavern - they make great suggestions!

Visit a fall festival.

Immerse yourself in arts and culture at the Greek Festival and Hispanic Festival or stroll the Jack-O-Lantern Jubilee street festival. You'll dance to live Greek music, eat all the empanadas you want, and hear Mark Chesnutt, Diamond Rio, and Loverboy on a cool, fall night.
