Augusta is a great place to live. I love day trips, and there are plenty of great cities. All that can be done in a day. We can day-trip to the coast, mountains, and towns with lots to do. Day-trippin’ – Four Great Getaways Near Augusta.

Here are my four Trip Tips for a successful day trip:

1- Leave early. I usually leave around 5-6 AM. It gives me more time to enjoy the place I’m daytrippin’ to.

2- Have a plan. I usually map out my trips and have some things I would like to see while there.

3- Food! Part of my plan is to have lunch at one of the local restaurants, preferably a hamburger joint.

4- Do your research before going. You can find out online where all the cool places are in the towns you are visiting, saving you a lot of time.

These are just four of my favorites, but as I mentioned before, we are fortunate to live in an area that is close to some really cool small towns, beaches, and cities. I have been taking road trips about every weekend. Being on a back road and going somewhere I’ve never been is therapeutic and gives me time to live in the moment.

All of the 4-day trips here are also places with a great food scene. Seafood is great in Folly and Beaufort, and downtown Greenville has some of the best restaurants in the south; Athens has some good ones, too. One thing in common with all of these on my list is they all have great downtowns.

I hope you can visit my four favorites soon, and I would love to know what you think. Make a good playlist and hit the road with the windows down, and discover new things. Have fun and safe travels!
