10 Ideas for Your Fall Bucket List
The weather is beautiful this time of year in Augusta's River Region, and we're all ready to celebrate the arrival of scarves and boots. Whether it's getting cozy at a local restaurant or enjoying some outdoor activities we have you covered. It's time to check a few items off your fall bucket list.
COFFEE + SHOPPING + CANDLE MAKING
Grab a coffee while shopping. A cool fall morning spent shopping at Surrey Center in search of seasonal goodies isn't complete without a hot or cold latte from Bodega Ultima in hand. Make a fall scented candle. Your fall favorite scent can come to life at Augusta Candle Company where you create a candle perfect for your home.
PUMPKIN PICKING + CERAMICS + CORN MAZE
Wander through the twists, turns, and dead ends of The Maze at Steed's Dairy. Entry includes extra family fun like hayrides, pumpkin patch, rubber duckie race, and more. Carve and paint a hand-thrown ceramic pumpkin to show off every fall at Tire City Potters. Pick up a pumpkin at Good Earth Produce & Garden and throw in some great fall mums and other greenery sure to liven up your space.
TOURS + BOOK STORES
Hang with the Haunted. As Georgia's second oldest city, Augusta has some eerie tales to tell. Hear stories of grave robbing, haunted hotels, and more on a tour with Haunted Augusta Historic Downtown Ghost Tours. 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!
BIKE + WALK + RUN
There's nothing better than strolling along the Augusta Canal or the Augusta River Walk with scenic views of the Savannah River. You can enjoy the beautiful fall foliage on foot or by bike at locations like Forks Area Trail System (FATS), Augusta Canal National Heritage Area or Bartram Trail.
