Downtown Augusta Georgia Virtual Walks for Treadmill – Virtual treadmill walks – 4k City Walks

Augusta is another one of those places I’ve heard about for years for but never been to. I pictured columned mansions dripping with spanish moss. Both of those things are there but this walk takes place downtown. As we drove in, we passed so many of those mossy, august mansions (see what I did there), but as we got downtown it became more urban. The main road is divided, with live oaks in the median and cafes and restaurants along the street as well as shops. There are some vacant buildings as well.

Augusta has been trying to lift itself up again and has so much to work with. Not just history, but it has a pleasant walkable layout in this section. It also appears to have a pretty interesting artistic side. I love shade of the oaks and spanish moss hanging down.

This may be the best Augusta walking tour you can find not in person. We walk along the river a few blocks over and see the fancy homes on the other side. We also stop by a open air theater along the Augusta Riverwalk. At some point I pass the James Brown mural. He was from Augusta. The weather stayed warm and sunny and the whole day vibed relaxed and redolent of a different lifestyle. I hope you’ll enjoy our virtual walks for treadmill as much as I enjoy filming it. -Henry
