Augusta Museum of History
While kids may be out of school, they can still learn and have fun and as the summer season makes its rise, consider taking a day trip to the Augusta Museum of History. With multiple floors of Augusta history in one building, this museum stands as the biggest collection in the CSRA.
With signature and special exhibitions all throughout the year, summer isn’t the only time to enjoy Augusta’s rich history. There are displays for historical local legends and fashion, to transportation. Don’t want to leave the house? Perfect, there are some online exhibitions about the Great fire of 1916 and Camp Hancock to be explored!

The Augusta Market at the River
After Covid hit the area of Augusta around this time last year a lot of places closed and events were canceled for the safety of the public. One of the most sought after, tell-tale signs of summer, the Augusta Market, was canceled for an unforeseen amount of time.
The most hard-hitting realization was for the small local shops and farmers that not only use this weekly market as a source of income but also as a platform for reaching new shoppers.
Thankfully, the Augusta Market at the River has made its return just before the summer season begins. Check out beautiful, local vendors selling handmade items, flowers, veggies and more every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. until November 20.
