Evans is a bedroom community outside of Augusta full of the usual suburban suspects: parks, walking trails, library, restaurants, subdivisions with various amenities, and strip malls. But it also has a bit of a personality, if you will. There are old staple mom and pop places that have been around for decades. There are holidays celebrated seemingly by the entire town. There is nature and beauty, of course, within easy reach for that hiking or kayaking trip. It’s a respite from the busy that surrounds it for those who enjoy that sort of thing.
In the residential space, you’ll find everything from attached townhomes to larger homes on spacious lots and everything in between. Neighborhoods like Riverwood Plantation, a planned live/work/play community on roughly 3000 acres featuring nature trails, fishing, a swimming pool, barn pavilion, and golf. Or Crawford Creek, a community featuring a resort-style pool, green space areas, and numerous nature trails for walking or biking. Is a riverfront community more your style? Look no further than River Island, an 880-acre conservation community situated along the scenic and tranquil banks of the Savannah River. Finally, if you’re looking for room to roam, Northwood and Woodlief are just a couple of the communities where many of the homesites are over half an acre. No matter what your needs are, we’d love to help you find your perfect home!
Sometimes your home is only part of the equation. If you’re looking for outdoor activities and things to do, make sure to check out Evans Towne Center Park and the Lady Antebellum Pavilion, as well as the Columbia County Amphitheater behind the Evans Library. Evans Towne Center Park is frequently home to concerts, festivals, and movies in the park, as well as Thunder Over Evans, one of the South’s largest fireworks displays. Love being on the water? Betty’s Branch at Riverside Park is one of the most popular kayaking destinations here locally. No worries if you don’t own a kayak. Cole Watkins Tours is a great resource both for rentals and guided tours. You’ll want to make sure to keep your eyes open on this 3-hour tour (for you Gilligan fans), as you’re likely to get a glimpse of some of the local wildlife including herons, osprey, deer, otters, owls, beavers, and more. Don’t forget to pack sunscreen and your camera!
