Do you have a case of Spring fever? We sure do. It’s time for you to go outside and enjoy some activities in the great outdoors. Here are some things to do around the city to help you bet your Spring fever.
First up is Neptune Dive and Ski. Serving the Central Savannah River Area since 1960, Neptune Dive and Ski is your premier, full-service, sporting goods center specializing in SCUBA, snow ski and swim. They are located next to Lake Olmstead. Neptune features complete lines of quality SCUBA diving equipment and snow ski apparel, accessories, and service, and our exciting selection of specialty swim and cruise wear and accessories. They host several trips a year for their customers to join in on the underwater and deep sea fun. They also have various training and swimming lessons. Since it’s been so long since we’ve been around one another, a safe choice is to host a small gathering. Amplified Events could help you throw an amazing post-pandemic event. They are your one-stop source for everything you need to make your next event exciting, unforgettable and as stress-free as possible. From photo booths and live DJ's to lighting equipment and karaoke machines, this could be a great first step to regaining some pre-pandemic fun.
If being outside isn’t your thing, you can try to get out of the house at least by going downtown to the Lucy Laney Craft Museum. Augusta is filled with history and this museum showcases some of Augusta’s notable Black citizens. The museum also displays a number of rotating exhibitions which feature well-known and emerging artists; and, educational forums with community leaders. The Annual Lucy Laney Craft Quilt Exhibition showcases regional fiber artists. Special exhibitions about entertainer James Brown, golf, and historical milestones are also popular attractions. You can also find walking tours to get you out and about. If your wallet has been itching you, you can check out Mema Had One. If you are looking for antiques or junk to help establish the look and feel of your home, they specialize in providing our customers with quality vintage and antique furniture to brighten or redesign the look and feel of their home. They even have vintage clothing!
There’s plenty of more things to do this Spring while the weather is on our side. Show us where you’re going by using the #LittleGuideAugusta hashtag or tag @LittleGuideAugusta in your photos. Happy Spring!
