Finding time to spend as a family can be hard when you've got a busy schedule. These options of family fun in Augusta will have you clearing some space in your calendar in no time. And, speaking of calendars, check out our calendar for more family-friendly events throughout the year!
Puddle Ducks: The second Tuesday of each month (except July), Phinizy Swamp hosts this nature adventure for younger children (ages five and under). Kids will love learning about the swamp and all of the plants and animals that call it home through stories, crafts and hands-on fun. Perfect for your little outdoor adventurer!
Storyland Theatre: Each year in the fall, winter and spring, original stories and classic children's tales come to life on the Grover Maxwell Performing Arts Theatre stage. Young thespians may meet the actors following the performance!
Last Saturday at the Park: Show your children what life was like for people living in the original colonies under the British crown, for free! Each Saturday, re-enactors at the Living History Park bring to life an 18th century colony for families to enjoy. Great for the budding history buff!
Evans Towne Center Park: Climb on the monkey bars or take a ride down the slide. There are two fenced playgrounds, one for toddlers and one for big kids. During warmer months, let the kids splash around at the Splash Pad. Perfect for families looking for places to play together outside!
Active Climbing Indoor Rock Climbing: When the weather's not great and you're looking for something to do together inside, surprise the family with a trip to Active Climbing and spend some time on the rock walls and "ninja warrior" obstacle courses. Adventurous families will love it!
Airstrike: The entire family will feel like kids again when they spend an afternoon jumping at this indoor Trampoline Park. Drink lots of water and prepare for everyone to need a nap when you're finished. Great for energetic families!
SNOCAP Drive-In: For more than 50 years, families have been ordering Smiley Fries and Root Beer Floats, but this old-fashioned, drive-in diner still keeps with menu fresh with fun items like MAC'nJAC Bites and Fruit Fritters. After a fun day out, take the family for lunch or dinner together!
Local Pro Tip : Take the kids from 4 - 9 p.m. on Thursday nights and get 1/2 off Kids Meals when you dine in.
