Hey y’all! A few weeks back I went on a girls trip to Augusta, GA with a group of influencers. Not only had I never been to Augusta before but I also had never met a single one of the girls in person and was definitely a little nervous going into the weekend. I couldn’t be more happy that I went because I ended up absolutely loving every one of them and we truly had the BEST time! One of my all time favorite parts about blogging is the community of amazing women and the chance to make new friends from all over. This weekend definitely reminded me that it’s GOOD to step out of your comfort zone and also reminded me why I love what I do!! Now I’m going to give you a quick recap of where we stayed, where we ate + drank and what we did in Augusta, Georgia!! **All my outfit details are also linked throughout this post.
WHERE TO STAY:
CROWNE PLAZA NORTH AUGUSTA: Before my visit I had absolutely no idea that North Augusta is was located in South Carolina. It was pretty cool to say I had been to three different states in less than 24 hours! We all stayed at the Crowne Plaza the first night of our trip and I loved every second of my experience there. I was greeted with a glass of champagne upon arrival and the staff were more than accommodating. We ate at the hotel restaurant, Salt & Marrow that night and I had one of the most delicious dinners ever (you have to order the surf & turf special). Not to mention the prime location of the hotel, located directly across from The Green Jackets Stadium. We headed over to a baseball game then back to the hotels rooftop bar, Jackson’s Bluff, to try out a few of their “boozy pops”. I then headed back to the room to crash and there was surprise make your own margarita bar set up… It was so stinking cute!! Not to mention the rooms were very clean, new and modern- I seriously slept like a ROCK that night! I woke up the next morning and had a quick workout at the hotel gym and then came back to my room to coffee and muffins waiting on me- What a sweet touch!! This hotel is basically brand new and I highly recommend checking it out if you ever find yourself in North Augusta. I truly can’t say better things about my entire experience here, it was FABULOUS!!
THE PARTRIDGE INN: The Partridge Inn is a totally different vibe from the Crowne Plaza North Augusta but absolutely did not disappoint. This is the cutest, most charming white Southern hotel with so much history!! The pool here was absolutely fabulous- We loved spending most of our day here!! The staff even brought us champagne, pretzels and fruit to snack on by the pool (we were seriously spoiled). We also had the opportunity to try out the hotel restaurant, P.I. Bar & Grill and the fun rooftop bar + terrace, P.I. in the Sky. My room here was huge and my bed was extremely comfortable. Not to mention the last night of our trip we had a SUPER FUN sleepover in one of the girls hotel rooms. The PI staff kept bringing us bottles of champagne and were just the absolute best. I can 100% recommend The Partridge Inn for accommodations in Augusta.
WHERE TO EAT + DRINK:
Bodega Ultima: The cutest little restaurant located in the Surrey Center. I had the avocado toast, a mimosa and an iced latte. It’s the perfect spot to grab a bite to eat and have a day full of shopping at all of the cute boutiques!
DiVino North Augusta: Such a fabulous spot if you’re in the mood for some Italian in the cutest little neighborhood. The atmosphere was adorable and the food was just delicious! **Tip: Be sure to try the spaghetti and check out the yummy dessert selection.
P.I. Bar & Grill: This was the restaurant located at The Partridge Inn. We hung out here and enjoyed cheese plates + champagne on the cutest little outdoor terrace!
P.I. in the Sky: The rooftop bar at The Partridge Inn was absolutely amazing. The view was breathtaking and the cocktails were on point.
Jackson’s Bluff: The coolest rooftop bar at Crowne Plaza North Augusta. We loved trying out their signature cocktails and “boozy pops”. Head here for a fun nightlife experience after a Green Jackets game!
Salt & Marrow: This was by far my favorite meal of the weekend. We treated ourselves to wine, cocktails, appetizers, surf & turf and DESSERT. I could barely breathe by the end of it. I highly recommend dining here for a nicer meal.
WHAT TO DO:
Watch a Green Jackets baseball game at SRP Park! We had the most fun V.I.P. experience!
Hang by the fabulous pool or have a sleepover party at The Partridge Inn!
