Walked along the river. Took pictures, read the history markers. Very nice views. Was great to learn about the flooding that has happened in the past.

Definitely NOT like the Savannah River Walk. Don't expect that......if you do, you will be disappointed. There were no shops along the walking path. BUT it was... More

The downtown area boarding the Riverwalk seemed to be closed. The Riverwalk did not display the life of a Riverwalk in other cities I have visited. It was... More

I waited until I only had 3 months left of my time here before I did the Riverwalk. It is so beautiful.

I visited Riverwalk during the day, evening, and later at night. The natural beauty was great but different as the day progressed. I felt very safe at all times and had no issues at all. This is a really cool gem in Augusta that you should take the time to enjoy.

It had been a long time since we walked the river walk... My wife and I walked while my young son ran back and forth between. They are building up the area... It's a very peaceful walk to share with the family.
