Nice views, lots of places to sit along the walk. There is a center where performances take place - the day we were there someone was there practicing their lines for a play.

This is a great place for a morning or evening stroll. Quite, scenic and gives history of Augusta. We even saw the train come through town and over the bridge at the Riverwalk

Ever been to the Riverwalk along the canal in San Antonio? I've been there a lot. A little over 50 years ago it was essentially a sewer, backed up with trash, and when you combine its size with the size of our riverfront and many...More

We loved the Riverwalk! We highly suggest if you want a nice walk by the river with the added benefit of history, this is a must visit place for your and your family or just some me time. It is hilly in some area, so...More

Had a great walk along the shaded path on Saturday morning and found a great surprise; a farmer's market.

On the town side of the levee (the upper part of the Riverwalk) are several restaurants... we were there one night and ate at Boll Weevil (Southern fare)… it was pretty good, and no reservation required...
