Home of the Masters, one of the world’s most storied golf tournaments, Augusta is a Southern charmer nestled in the Georgia heartland. From our Holiday Inn® Augusta hotels, you can shop the historic downtown, amble along Riverwalk or canoe the waters of the Augusta Canal.
Augusta’s leisurely pleasures are within easy reach of our hotels in Augusta. Head to the historic downtown on one of the Augusta Public Transit buses. Restored textile mills and 19th-century buildings along Broad Street have been reborn as antique shops, galleries and restaurants. Just north of Broad Street, the tree-lined Riverwalk traces the glossy waters of the Savannah River. Georgia’s first National Heritage Area, the Augusta Canal rents canoes and kayaks for exploring the wildlife-rich waters. In the National Science Center at Fort Discovery, budding scientists can scale Martian Towers or explore the galaxies in the StarLab Planetarium. If you’re lucky enough to snag a ticket, you can trace the footsteps of golfing greats on the lush greens of Augusta National, site of the Masters Golf Tournament. Masters badges are highly coveted; tickets to the practice rounds are easier to come by.
Augustans love their pit-cooked barbecue, and barbecue joints aplenty are in easy reach of your Augusta hotels. President Jimmy Carter was such a fan of the barbecue hash at Sconyers Bar-B-Que that he had it shipped to the White House—and it’s still on the menu today. In summertime, enjoy the all-American pleasures of a ballpark hot dog and a baseball game showcasing the city’s minor-league team, the Augusta GreenJackets.
Stay in our Augusta hotels to enjoy the city’s mild climate and year-long recreation on the waters of the Savannah River. Whether you’re paddling sun-dappled marshland or picnicking on the riverbanks, your Augusta hotels are never far from all that’s wet and wild.
