To Our Visitors, Welcome Back 

The hustle & bustle is coming back to Augusta, Georgia as outdoor patios soak up the sun, our Savannah River beckons paddlers and boats, and downtown starts to receive guests & locals again. We are incredibly excited to begin welcoming our long-awaited visitors back to our beautiful Georgia city. 

We have included excerpts from Georgia Governor Brian Kemp's lifted executive order, along with continued Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance for increased sanitation measures and hand-washing practices. 

Augusta's Experience Center 

Augusta's Experience Center, Augusta & Co. has reopened to locals and visitors. The visitor center and storefront will be operating on new hours and guidance for the public, with increased sanitation measures.

Spring & Summer Activities
