Overview of Macon

Macon attractions and tours offer a look into the area's 17,000-year history. Hike through ancient Indian mounds and enter North America's only reconstructed earth lodge, or take in the state's largest collection of African-American art, history and culture. Stroll along the river or down wide avenues lined with art galleries, boutiques and architecture as diverse as the people who built it.

Sit on the dock with legendary Otis Redding's life-size bronze statue and decide which Macon nightlife venue will entice you to order a glass of wine, sit in on open mic night, or catch the next rising star to come out of Macon. Sample some soul food or try signature dishes from lively local restaurants in a town where a night out means fine dining, drinks, or dancing, but also a moonlit walk among Old South mansions, a Broadway play or a live show at the birthplace of Southern rock.

At the end of the day's adventure, catch some shuteye here at the 1842 Inn, where you'll will be surrounded by history and hospitality. We can't wait to show y'all around!
