Fun Things to Do & Date Ideas

If you're looking for fun things to do as a couple or romantic dining spots, then check out these date night ideas around Augusta's River Region.

Retro Romance

Grab dinner at SNO-CAP Drive-In and head over to Red Wing Rollerway. Order a basket of Munchers (tater tots stuffed with cheese and jalapenos), a couple of Rachel Burgers, and a Root Beer Float to share before you spend a few hours skating to a mix of classic and current tunes.

Bowling & Craft Brews

Spark a little competition and see who can bowl the most strikes at Brunswick Zone National Lanes. Go old school and order a soft pretzel and nachos from the concession stand. Afterwards, tour Riverwatch Brewery and spend a while on the outdoor porch sipping seasonal beers.

Tapas & Theatre

Reserve a table at The Bee's Knees and see a show at Le Chat Noir, the Imperial Theatre or the Miller Theater. Order the Smoked Gouda Nachos, the Goat Cheese Bruschetta and a Pad Thai to share and make sure you ask about their seasonal cocktail menu and desserts.

Greeneway Picnic

Order a picnic lunch from the Hammond's Ferry Larder and rent a couple of bicycles to take for a spin along the scenic Greeneway. When you find the perfect spot, unpack and enjoy lunch with a view of the Savannah River. Bicycling not your thing? Then check out our Picnic Blog, pick up a charcuterie selection from Finch & 5th and a bottle of wine for an outdoor rendezvous.

Wings, Oysters & Wine

Schedule an aerial tour of the River Region with Augusta Aviation for a 30 minute plane ride at sunset. Reserve a table at Abel Brown and get the Broiled Oysters, Endive Salad and Nantucket Cape Scallops paired with the Fritz Zimmer Riesling Spätlese.

Pizza & Arcade Games

Grab a slice or two from Pizza Joint and head to Stars and Strikes to battle it out on the arcade floor with a game of air hockey or Walking Dead. Don't forget a round of laser tag and bumper cars and some cotton candy or funnel cake fries for dessert.
