Augusta is a popular destination during Oktoberfest, but the small town along the Missouri River is also a great place for holiday fun and shopping. On December 13, Augusta is hosting its 31th annual Candlelight Christmas Walk through town. The streets will be glowing with a thousand lights as visitors make their way to dozens of stores for holiday shopping. There are also trolley rides, a scavenger hunt, wine tastings and more. After the Christmas Walk, enjoy dinner at Mount Pleasant Winery.

The holiday season is a great time to visit Grafton and other communities along the Great River Road. Each year, Grafton celebrates the season with the Holiday Riverwalk. Shops along Main Street will be open and offering deals and free samples. Visitors can also tour many of the area's B&B's all decked out for Christmas. If you are looking to get away from crowded malls and discount stores, consider spending part of your holiday season in Grafton.
