Visit Macon, Georgia for a Southern adventure that is sure to be good for your soul! The city's historic undertones harmonize for any family vacation, and 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.
Macon, called the “Song and Soul of the South” dates back many years and is home to many legendary musical artists such as Otis Redding Little Richard, Allman Brothers Band and new artists such as Jason Aldean. Experience the musical heritage while sitting on the dock with legendary Otis Redding's life-size bronze statue or visit the once home turned museum of the Allman Brothers Band.

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 of a live show at one of our historic theatres. Also, don’t forget to take home one of a kind treasures from Macon’s unique downtown boutiques or antique markets.
