Memorial Day Weekend
An Augusta Memorial Day weekend has a mix of activities for everyone. This is a time to honor the men and women who have given their lives while serving our country and also marks the unofficial start of summer. Whether you're looking for family-friendly fun, nightlife, or outdoor activities, Augusta is the place to enjoy your long weekend.
Since we’re right on the Savannah River, we’ve got plenty of activities for those who love water. Take a guided tour with Two Dudes and a Boat Kayak Rentals or with Reserve and Ride Watersports. Try Savannah Rapids Pavilion for kayaking, canoeing and SUPing. The lake is perfect for boating or sailing. With water comes greenery, like the Augusta Canal Heritage Area or Phinizy Swamp, which are both great places for hiking or biking. Check out Forks Area Trail System, otherwise known as FATS, the world-class mountain biking trail.
