Augusta, ME

Calling Maine’s capital city home since 1990, Margaritas Augusta is located just off of Interstate 95 along the Kennebec River.

Originally a Native American village, due to its location on the Kennebec River, Augusta eventually became an English trading post in the 1600s and was named as the capital of Maine in 1827. Today, Augusta is a thriving New England town with plenty of museums, historic sites, and parks to keep visitors busy. Old Fort Western, the oldest wooden fort (still standing) in New England is located in Augusta along with the Maine State Museum and the Augusta Civic Center, which holds numerous events throughout the year and fills the local hotels with travelers from near and far. The Pine Tree State Arboretum in Augusta is a haven for nature lovers and draws visitors to its trails all year round.

And if the parks and museums aren’t enough for you, Augusta holds a few large events every year including the 4th of July Parade, the Whatever Week Family Festival and the Windsor Fair (held in the neighboring town of Windsor), one of the largest agricultural fairs with over 150,000 people attending each year.

In addition to its prime location along the Kennebec River, Augusta is only a 45-minute drive to the Maine coastal towns of Boothbay, Camden and Rockland. Many travelers to New England will pass through Augusta on their way to the Maine coast from the White Mountains of New Hampshire or vice versa as both of these areas are stunning in their natural beauty.

So if you come to Augusta to take in the history, visit a festival, attend an event at the Maine Civic Center or are just passing through, be sure to stop in to Margaritas Augusta! We have a full Mexican inspired menu, an outdoor patio and an authentic south of the border feel. Plus, we are right down the road from the Augusta hotels and shopping mall. We can’t wait to see you!
